Modified on Thu, 03 Nov 2022 at 09:44 AM

If you are looking for a way to grant SendAs/SendOnBehalf to M365 Groups you can use the following script:


You use the GrantSendOnBehalfTo parameter on the various mailbox and group Set- cmdlets to manage the Send on Behalf permission for mailboxes and groups:

  • Set-Mailbox
  • Set-DistributionGroup: Distribution groups and mail-enabled security groups.
  • Set-DynamicDistributionGroup
  • Set-UnifiedGroup: Microsoft 365 groups.
<Cmdlet> -Identity <MailboxOrGroupIdentity> -GrantSendOnBehalfTo <Delegates>

You use the Add-RecipientPermission and Remove-RecipientPermission cmdlets to manage the Send As permission for mailboxes and groups

<Add-RecipientPermission | Remove-RecipientPermission> -Identity <MailboxOrGroupIdentity> -Trustee <DelegateIdentity> -AccessRights SendAs
