A common issue amongst MSPs is the inability to mailshot all of your users in one go. As we know, these are forever changing, and would require constant updates.

Furthermore, some PSAs allow the syncing of tenants to their CRM to be able to log tickets against your users. But we do not want all of the service accounts and unlicensed users, right?

Well, here is a script to help you achieve such greatness.

DISCLAIMER! Running this code, you do so at YOUR OWN RISK. I have included a line that you can include to aim this at 1 tenant, or a tenant at a time, if you wish to do so.

This script will:

1. Cycle through each of your delegate tenants and
2. Create a mail enabled security group with a name of your choice and
3. Exclude certain words like info, sales (you can amend these) and
3. Update that list on further runs.

I would recommend using the line to specify just one of your clients first, so you can see the results.

The Code

Note here you will need to generate a secure app in your Office 365 tenant that has delegate access. Credit to Cyberdrain – Kelvin Tegelaar – https://www.cyberdrain.com/connect-to-exchange-online-automated-when-mfa-is-enabled-using-the-secureapp-model/
