Integration of Office 365

Last adaptation to the version:3.0.2

Previous versions: 2.5.7


The UMA operates in HUB mode and in this case retrieves the emails from a collective account.
While many email providers only support this function for incoming emails, Office 365 also allows outgoing mails to be copied to the collective mailbox using a so-called journal rule.

This article shows how to set up the Office 365 Administration Portal in the UMA.

User Administration

Connection to an Active Directory (recommended)

If an Active Directory is available, it is recommended to integrate the Office 365 environment into the local environment. Integration synchronizes users and email settings between Office 365 and the Active Directory. This facilitates the administration of all systems and increases the comfort for the user.

This is the only way to archive public folders and shared mailboxes as public folders!

Local Users

If no Active Directory is available, the users can be managed locally on the UMA.

Only private archives can be created and not public ones.

For example, if an info@ address exists, this address must be assigned to a user. This also consumes a User-License in Securepoint UMA.
The release of this archive for other users is not possible.

An address for undeliverable journal reports must also be provided. The email address you enter here must be within the Office365 domain and no rules of any kind must be applied to the account's inbox!

Email account in the UMA

Configuration in UMA

This mailbox is then entered in the UMA.
The configuration is done in the menu System Settings/ email Server

Remote email accounts receive all journal emails from a mail server.
This usually includes several individual user email accounts.
The remote email accounts must be created in the Mail Server as journal accounts, so that all associated mails (outgoing and incoming mails of the mail server) can be received here.

Archiving only takes place if the following settings have been made under System Settings / email Accounts users with a corresponding email address can be created.

account details:

Name: Journal Account Freely selectable name
Servername: imap.mailsever.anyideas.de Mail server that hosts the journal address.

The Office 365 specific configuration is now complete.

The users must also be created or the UMA must be connected to an Active Directory. The setup is described in [[Administration-Center_Webinterface_UMA2.0#Konten [this Wiki]].
