How to generate a report of all your Teams’ channels email address

Teams Channels email address

If your users require emailing Teams channels rather than the Team itself, they can use the channel email addresses. These email addresses are generated once a Team member requests one if it does not already exist. Team members can also remove them, and if a new request is made, a brand-new email address is created.

The challenges of managing your Teams’ channels email

Microsoft Teams channels are amazing tools for group work and to increase communication and collaboration within employees. Native capabilities such as having a specific email address for your different channels allow even higher collaboration. But there are some potential drawbacks, one of which is email address management.
So what happens when users send an email to an old channel email address? They will get a bounce. You will most likely ask yourself as any responsible admin would “How can I help prevent that?”. There are two options you can choose from. First, you can search the overwhelming search audit log where such activities are recorded, the second is to go to the source itself: the channels.

How do you know which Microsoft Teams’ channels have an email available?

If you need a quick report on these channel email addresses on a Team or several Teams for that matter, you can use a combination of PowerShell and Graph APIs requests, or you can let sapio365 do it for you.
