Pamu 86 Reputation points

Hi everyone,

Is there a specific PowerShell script or any other method that I can use to list down all the Distribution List, Microsft365 Groups a specific member is a part of?

A script to list down all the Shared-Mailboxes a user has permission to would be appreciated too.
Like something that would help in an user off-boarding process?

Thanks in advance for the help!!!

    There are plenty examples available online, here's one of mine:
    If you want a quick one-liner instead, use this:

    Get-Recipient -Filter "Members -eq 'CN=user,,OU=Microsoft Exchange Hosted Organizations,DC=EURPR03A001,DC=prod,DC=outlook,DC=com'"

    where you need to provide the DistinguishedName of the user.
