Hi All,

We are currently using Office 365 for our mail solution. I am having a problem setting up a shared mailbox that I setup in PowerShell. The shared mailbox is "support@domain.com" and I want to set up an Outlook 2010 profile, but when I put in the details it doesn't recognize the password, which I have tested in OWA and it does log in. I have even changed the password and tried setting it up with an Exchange, POP and IMAP accounts all with the same result.

Any ideas?

the idea of shared mailbox is it do not consume more licence.

If you able to put a password and get a external users to login, do you think microsoft will be kind to let you do so?

So the answer is, if it is a shared mailbox, it cannot be login-enabled. if you want login enabled, you need to pay for the licence and convert to a normal user.
