Outlook Mobile: Adding 2nd managed email account to Samsung phone
paul | Thursday, 17 October 2019 | Office365 | Outlook

The Outlook Mobile app only allows 1 managed email account to be added to the device  (https://docs.microsoft.com/en-gb/intune/fundamentals/end-user-mam-apps-android).

On Samsung devices it is possible to install a 2nd Outlook Mobile app so that an email account can be configured for each Outlook app. To do this you must use the Samsung Secure Folder (note: this does not work with Android Enterprise). This stores the app in a secure area of the phone completely separate from the normal apps and their data.

How to set up Secure Folder

Set up Secure Folder from the pre-installed icon

After you finish the initial setup, the Secure Folder icon appears on your Apps screen. The Secure Folder stub icon is displayed on the Apps screen or inside the Samsung Folder. If you turn off Secure Folder during the setup wizard, then the icon is not displayed.

To get started, click the Secure Folder icon.

Set up Secure Folder from device settings

On your device, follow these instructions:

  1. Go to Settings > Lock screen and security > Secure Folder.
  2. Tap Start.
  3. Tap Sign in when asked for your Samsung Account.
  4. Fill in your Samsung account credentials. Tap Sign in.
  5. Select your lock type (pattern, pin or fingerprint) and tap Next.
  6. Secure Folder is now set up and is created on your device.

NOTE - To open Secure Folder, tap the Secure Folder icon created on your device apps screen.

Then open the secure folder on the phone and use the “Add Apps” button.

It should then list Apps installed on phone already. Select Company Portal and Outlook.

Run Outlook. Add 2nd managed email account.

Outlook error when deleting calendar items from delegated calendar
paul | Monday, 23 September 2019 | Office365 | Outlook

Use receives error message, "Some items cannot be deleted. They were either moved or already deleted, or access was denied." , when trying to delete items from a delegated calendar in the Outlook client.

Outlook deletion error

This was due to the Outlook client being configured to place deleted items in the delegated mailboxes "Deleted Items" folder rather tyhan the users own and not having access to write to that folder.

It can be fixed by adding a folder permission to the deleted items folder as below or the user can use shift+delete to bypass using the trash folder.

Add-MailboxFolderPermission -Identity "$mailbox:\deleted items" -User $username -AccessRights Author

OneDrive automatically syncing libraries
paul | Monday, 16 September 2019 | OneDrive | Sharepoint

Recent versions of OneDrive added the ability to sync Sharepoint libraries automatically using group policy.

Computer Config -> Policies -> Administrative Templates -> OneDrive -> "Configure team site libraries to sync automatically"

The library name must be specified and the library id copied after pressing the sync button in the sharepoint library.

This create the registry entry Software\Policies\Microsoft\OneDrive\TenantAutoMount.

Also File On-Demand feature must be enabled, in OneDrive, for this to work and the update ring must be set to Production and production version installed (does not currently work with Enterprise ring set).
