Exchange 2007 – Change a Shared Mailbox to User Mailbox

5d05eb33135798a962e3199db1fa4a4c

You may have seen our previous post about changing a user mailbox into a shared mailbox in Exchange – but what if you want to do it the other way around and change a shared mailbox into a user mailbox? Well, see below….

There is a simple powershell command that you can run within Exchange Management Shell (EMS) to carry this out.

Just open up EMS and use this command:

 Set-Mailbox "shared mailbox name" -Type:Regular  
where
  • “share mailbox name” – is the name of the user mailbox you want to change to a shared mailbox

Then if you go back into your Exchange Management Console, you should see that this is now a user mailbox.
