Site Mailbox in SharePoint 2013

A Site Mailbox is a shared inbox in Exchange Online that all the members of a SharePoint Online site can access. The Site Mailbox is accessible from the site in which it is created. The email address of the site mailbox will be generated automatically from the name of the site.
A site mailbox can be used from a SharePoint team site to store and organize team email.
