Deployment of a resource mailbox

A resource mailbox means an emailbox that is not a personal mailbox but an emailbox intended for shared use by a community or project. A resource mailbox is also referred to as an organisational mailbox.

After ordering a resource mailbox, you will be created one briefly.

If you use Outlook on a Windows workstation, the resource mailbox will appear automatically in the left panel of Outlook approximately 30 minutes after it was created (this may require a restart of Outlook).

If you use Outlook or Mac Mail on a Mac workstation, Mozilla Thunderbird, or wish to open the resource mailbox in Webmail (https://mail.aalto.fi), see the instructions below on how to start using the resource mailbox.
