Convert Mailbox Type using Exchange Management Console

In Microsoft Exchange (2007 - 2010), there are four types of mailboxes that you can configure for different uses depending on your purpose:
Regular - Standard user mailbox Room - Manage shared room scheduling Equipment - Manage share equipment scheduling Shared - Shared mailbox However you may need to convert a mailbox type. Use the following command in the Exchange Shell to convert the mailbox

Set-Mailbox -Type
For example, I want to convert my Shared Mailbox "Boardroom" to a Room Mailbox, I would use the following command:

Set-Mailbox Boardroom -Type Room
Once completed the mailbox will be converted and ready for use. This take no time to convert.
