Office 365 – Change a shared mailbox email address

Office 365 – Change a shared mailbox email address

Sometimes you use a shared mailbox to receive emails on a given project and then the name of the project change with its email address.
Unfortunately for GUI lovers, on the Office 365 web administration portal you can edit the name and the alias but you can’t edit the email address itself. So, you have to do it through Powershell.

So open a PowerShell window and login to your administrator account:

$Cred = Get-Credential
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
Import-PSSession $Session

Then change the email address directly using this command:

Set-Mailbox -Identity -EmailAddresses

To finish, refresh the web interface and you will see the change.
