Make "mail" field writable RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello, 

    I am trying to update a Windows Azure Active Directory user "mail" field but I get the following error: "Property 'mail' is read-only and cannot be set".

    Is there any way to make this field writable?

  • Hi Nicolas,

    The mail property is actually a read-only field (this is a typo, it should be "R", not "RW" for this property). Could you describe your scenario? Why do you want to set this property? Perhaps there is an alternative option.

  • Hello Philippe, 

    Thanks for your answer.

    In fact I have a bug in SharePoint Online (email alerts are not sent when a document is shared from a personal site, only on the first share though) and I was told that if I could set the "mail" property it could solve this issue.

    I now see this lead isn't the right one!
