The name "Help Desk" is already being used. Please try another name.


Recently I came across with an issue where user cannot create Shared Mailbox with "Display Name : Help Desk", Below I am updating the cause of this issue & the resolution.

Error:

The name "Help Desk" is already being used. Please try another name.

There are 2 options to resolve.

Method : 1


  1. Create a User Mailbox with "Help Desk" as display name (or) any name matches with the admin roles.
