Site Mailbox


Starting March 2017 you will see the following message when trying to add a site mailbox to your SharePoint Online site



This is due to the fact that the site mailbox feature in SharePoint Online starts being deprecated beginning in March, 2017. New SharePoint Online tenants have no access to the site mailbox feature and existing SharePoint Online tenants can no longer create new site mailboxes, which results in the message above.

All previously created site mailboxes are still accessible and will continue to function, however, the site mailbox feature is planned to be removed entirely in a future release.

The official announcement can be found here: https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Prepare-for-using-site-mailboxes-in-Office-365-6381daa5-3d98-4629-972d-d19e1dc48c1b

Other options


As per the above-mentioned announcement, there should be a migration tool available around September, 2017, but already consider other mail exchange solutions, such as Office 365 Groups and Shared Mailboxes. 

Office 365 Groups



Office 365 Groups are a great mixture of SharePoint and Exchange capabilities, with site collection created in the background and a mailbox associated with the group. You can see that with Powershell:
# Connect to SPO and EXO
Connect-SPOService -Url https://t321-admin.sharepoint.com
 
$sesja=new-pssession -configurationname microsoft.exchange -connectionuri "https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/" -credential $credy -authentication basic -allowredirection
Import-PSSession $sesja

#Check the SharePoint site
Get-SPOSite

#Check the mailbox associated with the Office 365 Group:
Get-Mailbox -GroupMailbox








Shared Mailbox 



Shared mailboxes do not require a separate license and offer up to 50GB of storage space.  You can create them via Powershell:
New-Mailbox -Name "Shared Mailbox" -Shared


 or Office 365 Admin Portal by navigating to Groups>Shared Mailboxes:
