is it possible for JIRA mail server to access Office 365 shared mailboxes yet?

I know you have to use this format for login but it is not working/

username: <O365 user name>/<shared mailbox name>
password: <O365 user password>

Hi Ben,

According to JRASERVER-30688 it should work using the following configuration:

Port: 993

Email address:

Password: (sharedmailbox user password)

Hope this helps.



According to the comments in JRASERVER-3088 it may also be necessary to reset the shared mailbox password. I was not able to authenticate from Jira until I had done this.

To reset the password in the Microsoft 365:

  1. Open the Microsoft 365 admin center.
  2. Go to Users > Active users
  3. Click the shared user you created for Jira
  4. Click Reset password
  5. Follow the instruction to create a new password
  6. Use the new password as described by @Maarten Cautreels
