  1. I removed a guest team member from my MS Team, and shortly after, they sent me a message in Teams.

    Even though they do not show up as a (guest) team member, how can they send me a message, and can they still see messages sent to the other team members?

    • Hi Anita,

      If you removed them from the team, they won’t be able to see anything further that happens in that team.

      As for her messaging you, she probably messaged you directly. Have you messaged her before? If so, you’ll still show up on her Teams client in previous messages.
