The Set-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy cmdlet enables you to apply a variety of mailbox policy settings to a server. You can set any of the parameters by using one command.

System.Boolean

This parameter specifies whether access to Windows SharePoint Services is enabled. Access to specific shares is configured on the Exchange ActiveSync virtual directory.

Note   Some Exchange ActiveSync policy settings require the mobile device to have certain built-in features that enforce these security and device management settings. If your organization allows all devices, you must set the AllowNonProvisionableDevices parameter to $true. This includes devices that cannot enforce all policy settings. When you run a cmdlet to set the size, the values that are available on a device are based on the predefined size in the Exchange ActiveSync Mailbox Policies. The predefined size can be one or more of the following:

  • Headers Only (This is the default setting.)
  • 2KB
  • 5KB
  • 20KB
  • 50KB

For example, if you run the Set-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy -id "<Policy_ID>" –MaxEmailHTMLBodyTruncationSize 4KB cmdlet, the option of setting the message size on the device to Headers Only and 2KB may be available. However, the 4KB option is not available.

The following list describes the predefined size that may be set in Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policies and the corresponding values that are available on the device:

  • If the MaxEmailHTMLBodyTruncationSize is set to unlimited in the policy, the full list of predefined sizes is available.
  • If the MaxEmailHTMLBodyTruncationSize is set to less than 2048, the Headers Only option is the only value available.
  • If the MaxEmailHTMLBodyTruncationSize is set to greater than or equal to 2048 but less than 5120, the Headers Only and 2KB options are the only values available.
  • If the MaxEmailHTMLBodyTruncationSize is set to greater than or equal to 5120 but less than 8192, the Headers Only, 2KB, and 5KB options are the only values available.
  • If the MaxEmailHTMLBodyTruncationSize is set to greater than or equal to 8192 but less than 20480, the Headers Only, 2KB, 5KB, and 8KB options are the only values available.
  • If the MaxEmailHTMLBodyTruncationSize is set to greater than or equal to 20480 but less than 51200, the Headers Only, 2KB, 5KB, 8KB, and 20KB options are the only values available.
  • If the MaxEmailHTMLBodyTruncationSize is set to greater than or equal to 51200, the Headers Only, 2KB, 5KB, 8KB, 20KB, and 50KB options are available.
