View Current Automapping setting
Currently there is no way to view whether Automapping of a mailbox is enabled or disabled in office 365. It would be nice to be able to view this value in either powershell or the GUI.
Additionally it would be nice to be able to turn automapping on or off via the EMC instead of only powershell.

I agree def needed.
We have a staff with 15+ shared mailboxes they cannot even open MS Outlook without it having issues from Crashing Outlook, Out-of-Memory Errors or not allowed to send/receive emails.
They advised disabling "MAPI" under mail features which would affect everyone from not seeing the mailbox, using distribution groups or powershell feature.
In a way I am amazed MS Outlook never fixed have multiple shared mailboxes open as this bug has been around since Outlook 2007
(Advised by Microsoft too many connections)
I absolutely agree on this. At this moment it is impossible to know if automapping is true or false. Not even with powershell. We need to check now and then the status on a mailbox.

Really annoyng dumb remove-add permission procedure just for check automapping. It would be nice to be able to view this value in either powershell.
I agree. Being able to view this on a per shared mailbox basis would be very essential to us.

Please add this feature the inability to confirm if the setting is there when users report issues with auto-mapping is a real pain. All we can do is re-run the command and see if it helps.
Please expose these attributes in the Exchange Management Console and allow their management there. For me, because I rarely have to use it and thus am not very familiar with it, PS is a real pain to use, especially if I just want to make one tiny change like this to a single user account. As it is, when I set up a new user I have to then start a PS session, figure out the syntax of the commands, and run one or more scripts to get the job done. It should be a simple checkbox in the console: Automapping for this user ON/Off. Status would show in the console, and life would be easy. Thanks.
On premise you can check the back links on a user account, we moved to group membership only having full access to guarantee no automapping.

Automapping settings have really caused a lot of issues with shared mailboxes. Not being able to check this setting when your dealing with hundreds of users when dealing with important company shared office365 mailboxes such as payroll and accountspayable is becoming an essential value to know
Would certainly be helpful to view the state of AutoMapping per mailbox. I can understand it might not be worth the effort to extend it to the Web UI but it should be available via PS!

Please add this. Can't believe I can't get this data from PS.
I needed this today and I'm absolutely bafelled that it isn't possible! %-/

Please fix this and/or add the feature in O365! Very strange that verify a user has automapping enabled, you have to use powershell to remove and then add the permissions! And still there's no way to confirm!
Daniel Cooper commented
Weird that it can be SET using set-mailboxpermission ($true/$false) yet there is no way to get- automapping settings ... *sigh* ... MS, really? Please fix.
Michael McNally commented
Most of the time, I do want automapping on.
Some of the time, I want automapping off.
All of the time, I can't tell which way it is set.
This really needs to be fixed.
In regards to the second sentence, it would be nice to be able to TURN AUTOMAPPING OFF. Now you can only delete and then re-add the permission (without automapping).
