Hello, I’m updating the status of this UserVoice suggestion back to “thinking about it”, as it appears the previous status update was misleading. The core of the suggestion is to allow folders.
Keep on posting on this suggestion to create folders within group mailbox.
We need this ASAP - What is the business case for not having this?
This is pretty much the only thing preventing all of my clients from fully adopting O365 groups. This is must have functionality for managing email, so as to prevent or reduce the need to save emails in SharePoint.

Thanks for your feedback. We are currently thinking about this. Can you please let us know what scenarios your organization uses shared mailboxes for and what options do you use. This will help us.
This is a great idea. We currently have a shared mailbox that is a few years old, and it contains a lot of historical information about the specific project. Having the ability to convert this to an O365 group would mean we can keep the use of the shared email address and utilize O365 groups functionality without having to make a new project email address.
We need this, or have to pay $25,000-$50,000 to get a 3rd party service provider to migrate us to a new tenancy. Nuts!!
We have announced that Group Owners will be able to leverage existing groups to drive membership in Office 365 Groups.
you can do this in SharePoint today (i.e. put all members into Read Only permission bucket)
