Manually Granting Permission to Access an Office 365 Mailbox

When connecting to Office 365 | Exchange Online, DigiScope may be told to grant the account it is using full access to all mailboxes in the organization.  If you would prefer to grant it access to only certain mailboxes, follow the steps below.

To grant permissions manually for accessing individual Office 365 mailboxes:
  1. In your web browser, go to https://login.microsoftonline.com/ and log in with the Global Admin account that you will be using in DigiScope.

  2. Go to the Admin section.
