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

  • Exchange Organization Administrator role

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

If you want to use the Exchange Management Console to manage address lists that were created in Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server, you must do the following:

  • Update the version attribute of the address list using the ForceUpgrade parameter.
  • Change the recipient filter using either the RecipientFilter parameter or one of the following filter parameters:
    • ConditionalCompany
    • ConditionalDepartment
    • ConditionalStateOrProvince
    • IncludedRecipients

The ForceUpgrade parameter suppresses the following confirmation: "To save changes on object, the object must be upgraded to the current Exchange version. After upgrade, this object cannot be managed by a previous version of Exchange System Manager. Do you want to continue to upgrade and save the object?" This confirmation occurs when you upgrade an address list that was created in Microsoft Exchange Server 2003 or Exchange 2000 Server. You cannot manage an Exchange 2003 or Exchange 2000 address list by using the Exchange Management Console until you update the object's version and change the recipient filter by using either the RecipientFilter,or the IncludedRecipients parameters.

System.Nullable

The IncludedRecipients parameter filters the recipient types that are used to build the global address list (GAL). The available values for the IncludedRecipients parameter are AllRecipients, MailboxUsers, Resources, Contacts, and MailGroups.

The AllRecipients value can be used only by itself. When multiple values of the IncludedRecipients parameter are separated by commas, the OR Boolean operator is applied.

The Name parameter specifies a new name for the address list. The name cannot exceed 64 characters, and it cannot include a carriage return or a backslash (\).

RecipientFilter

Optional

System.String

The RecipientFilter parameter specifies a filter for recipients to include in the address list. You cannot use this parameter if you use any of the following filter parameters:

  • ConditionalCompany
  • ConditionalDepartment
  • ConditionalStateOrProvince
  • IncludedRecipients
  • RecipientContainer

For more information about the filterable properties, see Filterable Properties for the -RecipientFilter parameter.

UseRusServer

Optional

System.String

noteNote:
This parameter is available only in Exchange 2007 SP2.

The UseRusServer parameter instructs the command to use the specified Mailbox server on which the Address List service is running to obtain and then set mailbox and Active Directory user attributes.

The Address List service is a component in the Exchange System Attendant service. The Address List service creates and maintains Exchange-specific attribute values in Active Directory. You can use the Address List service to update recipient objects in a domain by using specific information, such as address list membership and e-mail addresses.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf parameter.

 

Error Description

 

 

 

Exceptions Description

 

 

The first example shows how to modify the name of an existing address list.

The second example shows how to modify the type of recipients and the department of the recipients that will be included in the existing address list named MyAddressList2. MyAddressList2 is an address list from Exchange 2003, so this command also upgrades this address list.

Set-AddressList -Identity "All Users\Sales\building4" -Name building9
Set-Addresslist -Identity c3fffd8e-026b-41b9-88c4-8c21697ac8ac -IncludedRecipients UserMailbox -ConditionalDepartment Sales -ForceUpgrade:$true

Use the Get-AddressList command, piped to Format-List, to get the GUID, distinguished name, or path and name of an existing address list. Or, use Get-AddressList to get a specific existing address list, and then pipe the output directly to Set-AddressList.
