For Exchange Online mailboxes accessing public folders deployed at On-Premises:

  1. Ensure Mail Enabled Public Folders are synced to Exchange Online:

    Get-MailPublicFolder <MEPFName>
    

    Example:

    Get-MailPublicFolder OnPremPF
    

    If the MEPF from On-Premises are not showing in EXO, use the Sync-MailPublicFolders.ps1 (for Exchange Server 2010) or Sync-ModernMailPublicFolders.ps1 (For Exchange 2013/2016/2019) to sync the MEPF's first.

  2. Use following command in EXO PowerShell to assign SendAs permission:

    Add-RecipientPermission -Identity 'OnPremPF1' -Trustee "Richard" -AccessRights 'SendAs'
