The Set-User cmdlet modifies the attributes of an existing user in Active Directory.

To run the Set-User cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Recipient Administrator role

  • Account Operator role for the applicable Active Directory containers

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.
