Post to Yammer by sending an email message

You can post to a Yammer group or Yammer user by email, and you can reply to a notification email by email and your response is posted in Yammer. If you'd like, you can remove your email signature when you post to Yammer by using an email message.

Note: In the EU Geo, posting by email is available only for Office 365 connected groups.

Use email to post a new message or forward a message in Yammer

For a Connected Group

Build the email address as follows:

groupname+networkname@yammer.com

You will not receive an email confirmation after you post, regardless of whether the option to Require all users in your network to confirm their messages posted via email before posting is enabled or not.

However:

  • A confirmation email IS sent if you post to groupname+networkname@yammer.com

  • A confirmation email IS NOT sent if you post to groupname@network.com

For a Non-Connected Group

Build the email address as follows:

groupname@ network .com

If you post a message to a Connected Group in Yammer, you will receive an email confirmation regardless of:

  • Whether Require all users in your network to confirm their messages posted via email before posting is enabled or not

           or

  • Which email you use (groupname+networkname@yammer.com or groupname@network.com)

Tips: 

  • If there are spaces or punctuation marks in the group name, just omit them. For example, if your Yammer domain is Contoso.com, and you want to email to the Marketing Team, use the email address marketingteam+contoso.com@yammer.com.

  • To make sure you get the address correct, you can look up the group's email address. On the home page of a Yammer group, in the Access Options section, select Post to this group by email, and you'll see the group's email address.

Group access options, including subscribing, posting by email, and embedding a feed

Use email to post a new message or forward a private message to a user in Yammer

Build the email address as follows:

first_part_of_user's_Yammer_email_address + network_name @yammer.com.

For example, to send a mail to Yammer to LisaG@Contoso.com, use the email address lisag+contoso.com@yammer.com

Remove your email signature when you post to Yammer

To remove your email signature when you post to Yammer by using an email message, add two hyphens on a separate line before your signature. Yammer will ignore any text that appears after the two hyphens.

For example, you send an email message that resembles the following: 

   Here is my message.

   --
   My Name
   My Address
   My Phone Number

In this example, your email message will appear in Yammer as follows: 

   Here is my message.

Note: Any image in your signature will still be added because Yammer views an image as an attachment to the message.
