I created a shared mailbox in Office 365 Small Business called "Maintenance." We are funneling inbound tasks for maintenance to complete to the tasks list in this mailbox. Everyone is using Outlook 2010/13. I don't want 2 of the 6 people to be able to delete the tasks. It would be nice if everyone can only delete tasks they created.

I have SharePoint Online and Exchange Online in my O365 Small Biz package. I demoed E3 and it had WAAAAY more granularity in the settings. I can't even use PowerShell with O365 Small Biz.

What is the best way to share common task lists while restricting who can delete the tasks?

Do not use Full Access permissions on the shared mailbox, only share the Tasks folder using folder permissions. You can do this directly from Outlook, no need for PowerShell (folder permissions should even be available in OWA now).  You can choose between the "Edit own" and "Edit all" options, I believe they are descriptive enough :)
