A shared email box gives multiple people access to send and receive messages from a single email address that is not associated with an individual. Shared mailboxes also provide a common calendar. Departments will find the shared mailbox useful for several reasons:
- A central departmental email address can be linked to the shared mailbox, allowing staff with permission to see and respond to messages.
- The shared calendar can be used to schedule and view team PTO or shift work.
- The shared calendar can act as the organizer for meetings.
- Those with access log in with their Andrew userID and password.
