Steps to set up Sigsync signatures for Shared mailboxes


Setting up dynamic Sigsync signatures for Shared mailboxes


Configuring Sigsync signatures for Shared mailboxes

Problem Description:

We have successfully configured Sigsync signatures for regular mailboxes by utilizing the Active Directory properties to dynamically load data into the email signature. However, Shared mailboxes do not possess Active Directory properties by default, which presents a challenge in setting up dynamic signature templates that rely on the Active Directory attributes specific to each Shared mailbox.


While regular mailboxes have associated Active Directory properties, Shared mailboxes do not have these properties by default. This limitation makes it difficult to create dynamic signature templates that utilize the Active Directory attributes of Shared mailboxes. However, there are few simple steps detailed below to address this issue:

  1. Step 1: Set delegate rights (‘Send As’ / ‘Send On Behalf’ permissions)

    Grant delegate rights, including 'Send As' or 'Send On Behalf’ permissions, to enable authorized users to effectively manage and send emails from the shared mailboxes.

    1. Log in to Office 365 admin center
    2. Navigate to ‘Teams & groups’ > ‘Shared mailboxes

      Navigate to Shared mailboxes

    3. Select the shared mailbox you want to set delegate rights

    5. Click the ‘Add Permissions’ button

      Add Permissions

    6. Select the members you want to set the delegate rights and click the ‘Add’ button

      Select the members

  2. Step 2: Add or edit Active Directory properties (profile) for Shared mailboxes

    After setting delegate rights, create a new Active Directory profile for the Shared mailbox if it is not already available in your Azure Active Directory.

    1. Select the ‘Azure Active Directory’ tab on the left side panel

      Azure Active Directory

    2. Search and select the shared mailbox

      Search and select the shared mailbox

    3. Click the ‘Edit properties’ tab

      Edit properties

    4. Fill the required fields and click the ‘Save’ button
