How can we improve the tenant admin features O365?

Hide shared mailboxes from the Skype contact list

We use shared mailboxes in O365 and have set the Exchange property "Hide from address lists" to false for some of those. However, when we use the "Find someone" box in Skype for Business, these hidden mailboxes still appear in the list. Is there anyway to hide them from Skype?

    Can you try to modify the AD objects attributes?
    msExchHideFromAddressLists=$true
    ShowinAddressBook = empty

    Skype uses the information from Exchange and Sharepoint.

    Downside is that this also hides the groups from the Exchange addresslists.
