Hi Dears,

 

Is it possible to create office 365 user "Unlicensed" with mailbox, because I just need it for mailbox (will not use Excel or Teams or....)

And I try not to waste a license for this..

 

what the best solution. Thanks,

No, the mailbox won’t be provisioned without a exchange license! If You just need a mailbox you can create a shared mailbox that other (licensed) users can access

yes you can create a shared mailbox as this does not require a license. to learn how to create a shared mailbox click here: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/admin/email/create-a-shared-mailbox?view=o365-worldwi...
