How to create Shared Mailboxes with GUI-based Tool in Exchange Online for Office 365?

Today I'd like to shared usage of Shared Mailbox GUI-based Tool in exchange online for office 365 who don't want to use Powershell script.

But one thing I can tell is you cannot avoid usage of powershell script entirely.

But we can use GUI tool for creating and assigning permission for shared mailbox.

OK. Let's start!


Here, I assumed you already setup to get access exchange online remotely from powershell.


1) Download Office 365 Shared Mailbox Tool.
2) Login to Exchange Control Panel and create Security Group and add users that you want to share mailbox to those.
3) Run Office 365 Shared Mailbox Tool that you downloaded in step 1.
    There is two files, SharedMailboxTool.ps1 and StartSharedMailboxTool.bat.
    Please run StartSharedMailboxTool.bat as an Administrator.
    You will be asked to key in username and password for Exchange Control Panel login.
    After login to ECP, you just keyin required information in related field and create.
    Shared Mailbox creating and assigning permission is done.




That's it.
