Free Training – How to Create Shared Mailbox in Exchange Server 2010 both in EMC and EMS

 “Shared Mailbox” is a mailbox, which allows accessibility to multiple users. This is an inbuilt feature in all Microsoft Exchange Servers. Information about the Shared Mailbox is visible in the mail box list of the recipient mailbox.

In this article we are going to learn how to create a Shared Mailbox by using the Exchange Management Shell. The shared mailbox can only be created in the Exchange Management Shell. It is not created in the Exchange Management Console.

Once we create a Shared Mailbox, we will be able to apply permissions on it. These permissions are applied by the Exchange Management Shell or Exchange Management Console, or both.

Step 1: Open the Exchange Management Shell. Now, type the following command to create a Shared Mailbox:

>New-Mailbox –UserPrincipalName Sharedxyz@bks.local –Alias “Sharedxyz” –Name “Sharedxyz” –shared

Here we will see that a “Sharedxyz” mailbox will be created.
