Try doing it with PowerShell. If it fails with a similar error, open a support case.

Hi Mr.X,
Did you try from Powershell?

I suggest you to try from Powershell.
Connect to Exchange Online Powershell and run the below command
Set-Mailbox <emailaddress> -Type Shared

Open in new window


hi, tried with power shell as well, same error code
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

Please open a support case as commented by Vasil.
