Getting a Shared Mailbox from Office 365 in the desktop Outlook App is quite easy. As long as the user has the right permissions to the mailbox, it will automatically appear to the left in their Outlook sidebar. Getting the Shared Mailbox to work on a mobile device on the other hand, is a whole other story. Especially if you do not want to use the more widely known method of using IMAP. Which makes you lose support for the Calendar and Contacts for instance. Also, it’s way more typing involved with technical server addresses and other non-user friendly settings.
Microsoft Office 365 has the ability to run Office 365 ProPlus on a RDS Server using a feature called Shared Computer Activation. In this short and straight to the point walkthrough I will guide you step-by-step on how to achieve this. Please do exactly as instructed and this should work without any problems.
IMPORTANT: For this to work you must have Enterprise E3 or a higher level of subscription licensed to your account.

Go directly to the Office Customization Tool to create your configuration.xml. Then use that in step 3.
Now that Windows 10 is officially out. There are two different CPU versions you can install, 32-bit and 64-bit. (Use the Windows Download Tool here.)…
One of the new features in Office 2013 is Hardware Graphics Acceleration which is supposed to improve performance. It doesn’t always work well on older computers (and even some new ones). Symptoms include slow switching from views such as Mail, to Calendar, to Tasks, etc, cursor hangs randomly, and Outlook freezing for a few seconds (or even longer and finally stops responding).
The solution? It’s quite simple actually. Just disable the hardware graphics acceleration via Outlook Options -> Advanced -> (Display) Disable hardware graphics acceleration. Restart Outlook and it should be snappy again!
It’s time for the next generation. A New Generation, says Microsoft. Watch the event live! Watch the live feed here -> http://www.xbox.com/en-US/hub/reveal [EDIT:] Visit the…
Sometimes you don’t want the end-user to choose the regional language settings when they start Outlook Web App (OWA – former Outlook Web Access). Luckily there is a way to force user-mailboxes to a predefined language setting, both individual user mailboxes and all users. This can be accomplished by using Exchange Management Shell (EMS – PowerShell) and the command: Get-MailboxRegionalConfiguration and Get-Mailbox.
If your e-mail gets stuck in the Drafts-folder when you try to send an e-mail from either OWA or Outlook, there are a couple of things you should check. I’m guessing you already have checked the settings under ECP – mail flow -> accepted domains/recieve connectors and send connectors. Including the Exchange 2013 Help – Configure Mail Flow and Client Access (TechNet) for any other settings you might have forgotten.
