How to Get your Microsoft Teams to Appear for mail and calendar operations


Depending upon your settings and circumstances, there's a chance that groups created in Microsoft Teams might play so well together. 

Specifically, your team might not be available for email.  As it turns out, the teams ARE available... they're just hidden.  

and a little PowerShell is enough to coax them out. 

Our Example

In our example, the site is called Application Redevelopment and you can see from the screenshot that it appears in teams but not in outlook.


The PowerShell Commands

Session Setup

The setup is as per usual;
Start PowerShell in Administrator Mode.

Set-ExecutionPolicy RemoteSigned

Press Y and Enter.

$UserCredential = Get-Credential

Enter your user name and password.

Create the session.

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://outlook.office365.com/powershell-liveid/ -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection

and activate it.

Import-PSSession $Session

The relevant command.

The command we need to use is Set-UnifiedGroup and the format we're using is as follows.

Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity "GROUPNAME" -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled:$false

Where GROUPNAME is either the name of the group or the email address of the group.

In this example, it's;

Set-UnifiedGroup -Identity "Application Redevelopment" -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled:$false

You can use the groups email address if it's easier.
Note that you can hide a Teams Group from email by ending in $true

Tidying Up

As usual, a tidy person will alway clean up their session.

Remove-PSSession $Session

and

Exit


The Proof. 

The screen shot below is probably enough proof.

How to Create an Auto-Response Mail Message in Lotus Notes 8.5.3+

Why would you do this? Suppose that you have an externally accessible generic email address for your company; support@mycompany.com or info@mycompany.com. You might expose this to the web and allow people to send messages to you. Setting up an auto-response email will tell the senders that their message reached its destination and that it will be dealt with accordingly.  It's also good practice to include links to FAQs or other useful information. Why 8.5.3 The techniques we'll be using here work in older versions of Notes but some of the options seem to have moved around in 8.5.3.  I figured it was a good time to show you where they've moved to. The Procedure Start Domino Designer and open the Mail file to be modified.  A really quick way to do this is to right-click on the application tab and choose "Open in Designer". In the Left hand panel of designer, expand Code and then double-click Agents.  A new window should appear. Click the action

How to Change Your Notification Options for New Lotus Notes Mail in version 8.x

Don't worry, I'm not patronizing you (my readers), I just decided to re-document this for one of our internal users and thought you might want to be able to use it in your own user documentation. WHAT IS THIS DOCUMENT ABOUT? Some people who don't get a lot of mail, like to be notified when such an event occurs. Notification can be; via a sound via a pop-up box via the system tray (where the computer clock is) The pop up box looks like this; Other people, who like myself, get too much mail would rather not be notified. The aim of this document is to tell you how (and where) to turn these options on and off. CHANGING YOUR SETTINGS To change your settings from the Notes 8.x client; On the Menu, click File , then Preferences... On the left hand side , click on the little plus sign to the left of Mail to expand the options. Click on the option marked Sending and Receiving . In the middle section, under receiving, you can control your notifications. If you untick the

How to Do a Mail Merge to Email using Lotus Notes

Why do one? In today's "green" world, it makes much better sense to send out emails than letters but you still want to personalize them. Sadly, by itself Lotus Notes doesn't support mail merge to email. Of course, we know that outlook does (but then it lets anyone and anything send emails for you - even when you don't want them to). So, how to do it in Notes? OpenNTF The first port of call is OpenNTF ( http://www.openntf.org/ ). This place is full of great things but most of them are really badly documented. Still, these guys give things away for free and they develop in their spare time, so we should be grateful for what we get. There's a great little project there called MailMerge Excel to Notes . Go there, click on releases and download the ZIP file. Getting to the Code The installation is tricky though I've noted that since I asked the author about the install, it's been updated (so maybe these steps are less necessary). Unzip the files to som
