I have some users that should not "have" their own mailboxes but should only be allowed to work with a shared mailbox. I failed in accomplishing just that.
So my question is pretty simple: How can I make sure that some selected users do not "have" their own mailbox but can only work with some shared mailbox I gave them Full Access permissions for?
I already tried removing the Exchange licenses from these users - but unfortunately they cannot use any Exchange/Outlook based services (like the Outlook Web App) anymore then.
EDIT 2015-10-04: Added following information.
Concerning the "what and why": I have a group of (partially external) people that manage some very specific project for my organization. These users should be allowed to work with the (shared) project mailbox (reading & sending mails there). Since some of them are not part of my organization and others are on an organizational level that is not high enough to grant them own mailboxes (with which mails could be send or received), I don't want these users to "have" (or to put it differently: to be able to properly use) own individual mailboxes.
