Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP3, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP1

Topic Last Modified: 2009-05-18

Use the Set-RecipientFilterConfig cmdlet to enable and configure the Recipient Filter agent on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role or the Hub Transport server role installed.


Set-RecipientFilterConfig [-BlockedRecipients <MultiValuedProperty>] [-BlockListEnabled <$true | $false>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Enabled <$true | $false>] [-ExternalMailEnabled <$true | $false>] [-Instance <RecipientFilterConfig>] [-InternalMailEnabled <$true | $false>] [-RecipientValidationEnabled <$true | $false>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

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

  • Exchange Server Administrator role and local Administrators group for the target server

To run the Set-RecipientFilterConfig cmdlet on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed, you must log on by using an account that is a member of the local Administrators group on that computer.

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

Error Description

 

The following code examples shows two Set-RecipientFilterConfig commands.

The first code example shows how to modify the recipient filter configuration so that recipient validation is enabled.

The second code example shows how to enable the Blocked Recipient list and how to add recipients to the Blocked Recipient list.

The BlockedRecipients parameter takes multiple values. When you pass a value to the BlockedRecipients parameter, the existing value is replaced with the new value. For more information about how to add or remove values from multivalued properties, see Modifying Multivalued Properties.
