You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Recipient Provisioning Permissions" section in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Name

Required

System.String

The Name parameter specifies the user's name. This is the name that appears in Active Directory Users and Computers. This is also the user name that appears in Recipient Properties on the User Information tab.

AccountDisabled

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The AccountDisabled parameter specifies whether to create the mailbox in a disabled state. You don't have to specify a value with this parameter.

Arbitration

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Arbitration parameter specifies that the mailbox for which you are executing the command is an arbitration mailbox. Arbitration mailboxes are used for managing approval workflow. For example, an arbitration mailbox is used for handling moderated recipients and distribution group membership approval.

ArchiveDomain

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.SmtpDomain

The ArchiveDomain parameter specifies the cloud-based services domain on which the archive associated with this mailbox exists. For example, if the SMTP e-mail address of the user is tony@contoso.com, the SMTP domain could be archive.contoso.com.

Discovery

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Discovery parameter specifies that this mailbox is a Discovery mailbox. Discovery mailboxes are created as target mailboxes for Discovery searches. After being created or enabled, a Discovery mailbox can't be repurposed or converted to another type of mailbox. You don't have to include a value with this parameter. For more information, see Understanding Multi-Mailbox Search.

Equipment

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Equipment parameter specifies that the type of resource is equipment, if this mailbox is a resource mailbox. This parameter is required only if you're creating a resource mailbox.

FederatedIdentity

Required

System.String

This parameter applies to objects in the cloud-based service. It isn’t available for on-premises deployments.

The FederatedIdentity parameter associates an on-premises Active Directory user with a Microsoft Office user.

ImportLiveId

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

This parameter applies to objects in the cloud-based service. It isn’t available for on-premises deployments.

The ImportLiveId parameter imports an unmanaged Windows Live ID into the cloud-based domain. An unmanaged Windows Live ID was created in the domain before the domain was enrolled in the cloud-based service.

Importing a Windows Live ID into the domain lets you save any settings associated with the Windows Live ID, like instant messaging contacts. However, the Windows Live ID is now subject to the security and privacy policies of the organization.

LinkedDomainController

Required

System.String

The LinkedDomainController parameter specifies the domain controller in the forest where the user account resides. The domain controller in this forest is used to get security information for the account specified by the LinkedMasterAccount parameter. This parameter is required only if you're creating a linked mailbox.

LinkedMasterAccount

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.UserIdParameter

The LinkedMasterAccount parameter specifies the master account in the forest where the user account resides. The master account is the account to link the mailbox to. The master account grants access to the mailbox. This parameter is required only if you're creating a linked mailbox.

This parameter accepts the following values:

  • Alias
    Example: JPhillips
  • Canonical DN
    Example: Atlanta.Corp.Contoso.Com/Users/JPhillips
  • Display Name
    Example: Jeff Phillips
  • Distinguished Name (DN)
    Example: CN=JPhillips,CN=Users,DC=Atlanta,DC=Corp,DC=contoso,DC=com
  • Domain\Account
    Example: Atlanta\JPhillips
  • GUID
    Example: fb456636-fe7d-4d58-9d15-5af57d0354c2
  • Immutable ID
    Example: fb456636-fe7d-4d58-9d15-5af57d0354c2@contoso.com
  • Legacy Exchange DN
    Example: /o=Contoso/ou=AdministrativeGroup/cn=Recipients/cn=JPhillips
  • SMTP Address
    Example: Jeff.Phillips@contoso.com
  • User Principal Name
    Example: JPhillips@contoso.com

Password

Required

System.Security.SecureString

The Password parameter specifies the initial password for the newly created user. This parameter isn't required if you're creating a linked mailbox, resource mailbox, or shared mailbox, because the user account for these types of mailboxes is disabled.

RemovedMailbox

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.RemovedMailboxIdParameter

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

Room

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Room parameter specifies that the type of resource is a room, if this mailbox is a resource mailbox. This parameter is required only if you're creating a resource mailbox.

Shared

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Shared parameter specifies that you're creating a shared mailbox. A shared mailbox is a mailbox to which multiple users can log on. This mailbox isn't associated with any of the users that can log on. It's associated with a disabled user account.

This parameter is required only if you're creating a shared mailbox.

UseExistingLiveId

Required

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

This parameter applies to objects in the cloud-based service. It isn’t available for on-premises deployments.

The UseExistingLiveId parameter uses the specified Windows Live ID that already exists in the cloud-based domain. The specified Windows Live ID can't have a mailbox associated with it.

UserPrincipalName

Required

System.String

The UserPrincipalName parameter specifies the UPN for this mailbox. This is the logon name for the user. The UPN consists of a user name and a suffix. Typically, the suffix is the domain name where the user account resides.

WindowsLiveID

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.WindowsLiveId

This parameter applies to objects in the cloud-based service. It isn’t available for on-premises deployments.

The WindowsLiveID parameter specifies the Windows Live ID of the mailbox.

ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxPolicyIdParameter

The ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy parameter specifies the mailbox policy to enable for the mailbox that you create. If you don't specify this parameter, the default mailbox policy is used.

AddressBookPolicy

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.AddressBookMailboxPolicyIdParameter

The AddressBookPolicy parameter specifies the address book policy to apply to this mailbox. For more information about address book policies, see Understanding Address Book Policies.

Alias

Optional

System.String

The Alias parameter specifies the e-mail alias of the user that you're creating.

The alias can be a combination of characters separated by a period with no intervening spaces. Don't use special characters in the alias.

ImmutableId

Optional

System.String

The ImmutableId parameter is used by Outlook Live Directory Sync (OLSync) and specifies a unique and immutable identifier in the form of an SMTP address for an Exchange mailbox that's used for federated delegation when requesting Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) tokens.

This example creates a user Chris Ashton in Active Directory and creates a mailbox for the user. The mailbox is located on Mailbox Database 1. The password must be reset at the next logon. To set the initial value of the password, this example creates a variable ($password), prompts you to enter a password, and assigns that password to the variable as a SecureString object.

$password = Read-Host "Enter password" -AsSecureString
New-Mailbox -UserPrincipalName chris@contoso.com -Alias chris -Database "Mailbox Database 1" -Name ChrisAshton -OrganizationalUnit Users -Password $password -FirstName Chris -LastName Ashton -DisplayName "Chris Ashton" -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $true

This example creates a user in Active Directory and a resource mailbox for a conference room. The resource mailbox is located in Mailbox Database 1. The password must be reset at the next logon. The Exchange Management Shell prompts for the value of the initial password because it's not specified.

New-Mailbox -UserPrincipalName confmbx@contoso.com -Alias confmbx -Name ConfRoomMailbox -Database "Mailbox Database 1" -OrganizationalUnit Users -Room -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $true
