Hi All,

I am looking for a help to add my additional exchange shared mailboxes in Thunderbird to receive the emails.

Tried all the options with new account creations... But nothing helps... :cry:

You would need to create two IMAP accounts and configure the shared mailbox in tools -> account settings -> server settings -> advanced -> public (shared). Unfortunately I have never tested that because somebody would have to set ACLs on the shared mailbox to allow the other account to access it. I'd have to either pay for a business account for several users or host my own mail server to do that.

I don't know how to do that for multiple mailboxes, its possible you could specify multiple mailboxes separated by commas in that field but I've never read anything about the syntax.
