📧 How to send emails to a Microsoft Teams channel?

Chain emails on one topic used to arise with groups of people.

Super inefficient.

Unfortunately, we still send many emails via Outlook.

If you wish to interrupt this behavior you can use emails that arrive in Microsoft Teams .

One advantage is that all forwarded emails are viewable by all members of the team.

Then, after this step, you can set up e-mail rules to automatically forward e-mails to a team from your mailbox - so you never have to follow up on e-mails again.

Later, you can have these incoming mails arrive at the deleted items so that the mail does not appear in two places.

In this blog, you'll learn how to send emails to a Microsoft Teams channel.

Open the desired teams channel to retrieve the e-mail address

Click on more options at the top right. Then select Get e-mail addresses. Use this e-mail address to send mails to this channel. Copy the e-mail address of the channel or team.


Open Microsoft Outlook to send a message to a teams channel

If you do not use Outlook you can also get started via webmail at: https://outlook.office.com

Copy the previously created e-mail address into the TO field and press send.


In this example, you can see that the e-mail arrived correctly.


Enable or disable e-mail capabilities in Microsoft Teams Admin centre

This control panel can only be used by Global Administrator or Microsoft Teams admins.

If the 'Get e-mail address' option is not available in the Teams channel, this is because a setting is incorrect.

Activate via the: Company Wide Settings.

Dear Jasper,

In MS Teams you can set it up so that when you receive a message you also receive an e-mail saying that a message has been received in MS Teams .
I would like it to be the other way round, because this only leads to more e-mails and more wasted time.
I would like all mails in my inbox to be forwarded automatically to MS Teams.
I then answer internal mail via Teams. I answer external mails via Outlook.
Can you tell me whether this option is available?

Kind regards,
Hans de Ruiter

Can I change my settings so that I don't get an email in Outlook saying that students have accepted the teams invite?

Hello Jasper,

Can you also use the teams-email address to mail your team members, i.e. so that the mail IS delivered directly to their inbox? Sort of an e-mail list, in other words.
