HTTP error: 404
Error code: MailboxNotEnabledForRESTAPI or MailboxNotSupportedForRESTAPI
Error message: "REST API is not yet supported for this mailbox."

Cause

This error can occur if the mailbox is on a dedicated Microsoft Exchange Server and is not a valid Office 365 mailbox.

Resolution

To get a valid Office 365 mailbox, submit a request to your Exchange or Global administrator to migrate the mailbox account. Users who don't have administrator permissions can't migrate accounts.
