O365 - Making mailboxes into resource mailboxes RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi All,

    I have been asked to review the archiving of ex-employees data, this archiving includes emails also. We used to just export their emails a PST and save it onto a network drive, but due to recent data loss, my manager has asked me to convert ex-employees mailboxes into resource mailboxes, however I can find no intuitive way in doing this.

    I'd appreciate any help please.

    Kind Regards

    Zak

    To convert a user mailbox to a room mailbox:-

    Set-Mailbox user@domain.com -Type Room

    To convert a user mailbox to a shared mailbox

    Set-Mailbox user@domain.com -Type Shared

    To convert a user mailbox to a user mailbox:-

    Set-Mailbox user@domain.com -Type Regular

    Once you convert a user mailbox to a room mailbox -> The AD account will be disabled
