Creating a shared mailbox

I am trying to setup a shared mailbox via Windows PowerShell for our Exchange account.

This is how far I have gotten.

1. $LiveCred = Get-Credential
2. $Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
3. Import-PSSession $Session

Now when I try to enter the command:
New-Mailbox -Name "Shared Mailbox" -Alias Shared -Shared
I receive an error message stating
"The term 'New-Mailbox' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, script file, or operable program. Check the
 spelling of the name, or if a path was included, verify that the path is correct and try again.
At line:1 char:12
+ New-Mailbox <<<<  -Name "Estimators Calendar" -Alias estimators -Public
    + CategoryInfo          : ObjectNotFound: (New-Mailbox:String) [], CommandNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : CommandNotFoundException"

Any pointers would be greatly appreciated.

You need to user Exchange powershell to make the Command "New-Mailbox" work.

User needs to have Global Administrator rights, and not Service Administrator rights.
