Topic Last Modified: 2007-06-28

Use the Remove-AttachmentFilterEntry cmdlet to remove an entry on the attachment filter list that is configured on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role installed.


remove-attachmentfilterentry -Identity <String> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Attachment Filter agent can block attachments from entering the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 organization based on the content type and the file name of the attachment. You can use the Remove-AttachmentFilterEntry cmdlet to remove an entry on an attachment filter list that is configured on a computer that has the Edge Transport server role or the Hub Transport server role installed.

To run the Remove-AttachmentFilterEntry 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 Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

System.String

This parameter specifies what type of attachment that this filter entry removes. The Identity parameter accepts values in the format Type:Name, where Type is one of the following two values:

  • ContentType   This value matches this attachment filter entry against the MIME content type.
  • FileName   This value matches this attachment filter entry against the simple file name.

In Type:Name, Name can be either the file name of the attachment filter entry to be removed, or the content type of the attachment filter entry to be removed.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

To specify the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to the Active Directory directory service, include the DomainController parameter on the command. The DomainController parameter is not supported on computers that have the Edge Transport server role installed. The Edge Transport server role writes only to the local ADAM instance.

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

The first code example removes the attachment filter entry that filters file names with a .txt extension.

The second code example removes the attachment filter entry that filters attachments that have the MIME content type image/jpeg.
