"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As long as the mailbox is set as a shared mailbox then you should be fine with no license,

the User mailboxes will need licenses,

to convert a shared mailbox please see the below link on how to switch things between shared and user mailboxes

If you are asking about a shared mailbox, as long as the shared mailbox is less than 50 GB in size and it's not being archived, a shared mailbox does not require a license.

Email addresses are not licensed.  The mailboxes are.  Resource mailboxes do not need a license either.  The only real caveat is the one I stated above.

Any mailbox can be converted to a user mailbox, shared mailbox, or resource mailbox and back.
