Site Mailbox is removed from SharePoint Online

Image
I tried to create a Site Mailbox this morning, in SharePoint Online and came to know this feature is no longer supported in SharePoint Online.
Tried to understand it in detail and following are the updates: Microsoft is notifying Office 365 customers that access to Site Mailboxes is being removed from SharePoint Online, and no more Site Mailboxes can be created from March 2017 onward. Site Mailboxes originally appeared as a feature of Exchange Server 2013. Site Mailboxes appended together an Exchange mailbox with a SharePoint site to allow users to collect email conversations in a single location, as well as access shared documents from both Outlook and SharePoint. If you are using Site Mailboxes, then you have got some migration work to look forward to. Otherwise, if you are looking for “email-centric collaboration”, Office 365 Groups are the way to go (Reference: Microsoft Community Groups).

Slide Library in SharePoint Online

Image
When you try to migrate from SharePoint 2010 to SharePoint Online (Office 365), Slide Library template is not listed as app in the Create App section.
You can still get it with a direct URL. I would not depend on it being there forever as the Slide Library is officially not in SharePoint 2013, but for now you can create one.
The direct URL to create the old Slide Library:
http://yourserver/sites/yoursite/_layouts/15/slnew.aspx?FeatureId={0be49fe9-9bc9-409d-abf9-702753bd878d}&ListTemplate=2100


Update 22/05/2017:
Even though above solution works as expected in SharePoint 2013 & SP Online it is advisable not to use since Microsoft may remove this feature in future.
