We currently have a SharePoint 2010 with a list that can receive e-mails from anyone that has a domain account/e-mail. However, we started to move some users to office 365, and even though there is a federated server, the user is not able to send the e-mail to the SharePoint list.

The question is: Is it possible to only allow the company users (including office 365 users) to send e-mails to the list but block everyone else?

Thank You for reading.

AFAIK email enabled lists are not possible with O365.

There are 3rd party products available with that features, see http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/en-US/onlineservicessharepoint/thread/73673deb-04e8-4a27-a825-fe3b58683135/

  • Thank you for your quick reply, but I was wondering about sending the e-mail to a local instance of SharePoint. The SharePoint is not on Office 365 yet.

  • I am afraid this is not possible with SharePoint. You could add an exchange rule to drop mails from other senders than O365. Commented Mar 25, 2013 at 16:12
