    Same story here...shared mailboxes that receive attendance email stating child will be absent. We need to auto-reply to each of these messages so the parent knows it has been received. It is possible the parent emails twice is short period of time in the example they have two students in the same school and are reporting both of them out and they send separate emails.

    I believe transport rules may be the place for this as we could specify multiple mailboxes to trigger the rule, we could provide exclusions like don't reply to any messages with subject "Undeliverable Mail", "Returned Mail", "Mail System Error", "Delivery Error", "Undeliverable:", "Failure Notice", "Nondeliverable Mail", "Mail Delivery Failure", "Message Status - undeliverable", "Warning: Could not send message", "Delivery Notification: Delivery has failed", "Mail Undeliverable: Failure Detected", "Message Status - opened", "Returned Mail: Service Unavailable", "Re:", "Out of Office", "Automatic reply:", ETC. Additionally, we could say do not reply if sender name matches any of the following: "Postmaster", "Mailer-Daemon", "Mail Delivery Subsystem", "System Administrator", ETC.

    Also it seems some anti-loopprotection is already built in. When you receive an "Automatic reply:" configured from Outlook it has some additional Header properties: "X-Auto-Response-Suppress: All", "X-MS-Exchange-Inbox-Rules-Loop: sender@theirdomain.com", "Auto-Submitted: auto-generated"...

    So they've done some of the legwork already: 2.1.3.2.20 Auto Response Suppress
    https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee219609.aspx

    Now just let us use this and make it easy to configure And as someone else mentioned, have some detection logic to further aid in stopping loops that are possibly intentionally attempted without the headers to suppress them.

    These votes would be better suited on a topic that better explains the issue. This topic has most votes regarding the initials, but doesn't explain much. Wish MS could combine request as once you put all the different requests that are basically asking for the same things this is a pretty hot topic.

    Adding my notes from other one:

    This is very annoying. Our organization is affected by this also. We have display names "Last, First" and the initials in the image show as "LF". I agree it should follow this progression:
    1) Does account have First Name (GivenName) and Last Name (SurName)? if yes use those for initials.
    2) Does DisplayName have a comma (,) that is not a followed by a Jr., Sr., II, III, IV, etc? If so, assume it is "Last, First" format and create initials accordingly.
    3) If neither of above exist, if there are three words then assume " First Middle Last" format and create initials with "FML".
    4) If none of above, and two words assume "First Last" format and create initials accordingly, "FL".

    Added bonus, maybe allow user to specify what to display. This way we can fix account that are for example "IT Department" to not be "ID", but rather "IT" and leave the "D" out entirely.

    This definitely needs to be done. My goodness, I just went to set up a Shared mailbox and the switch was missing! I couldn't believe it. -Equipment and -Room are there, but not -Shared ...CRAZY! Now I have to do the dance Juho mentioned, as you can't flip to a Shared mailbox in O365 or it will revert back. See Microsoft article: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/2710029/shared-mailboxes-are-unexpectedly-converted-to-user-mailboxes-after-directory-synchronization-runs-in-an-exchange-hybrid-deployment

    As David mentioned, you may want to transfer your votes to the more highly voted request which is the very same thing...

    We just went through this from Live@Edu and after many migrations we wanted to have our real name and not a dev name. This was a royal pain in the rear. No one at Microsoft could really walk us through making changes and they wanted us to coordinate the change ourselves by calling each different team in O365 which is crazy.

    We did complete the change by creating a new tenant and disconnecting things, moving them, and bringing them back up. It was in no fashion nearly that simple, as we were doing this for weeks!

    This really shouldn't be all that difficult to do from the Microsoft side of things, but without it being available it is a nightmare for clients.
