Set-Mailbox

 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2011-01-26

Use the Set-Mailbox cmdlet to modify the settings of an existing mailbox. You can use this cmdlet for one mailbox at a time. To perform bulk management, you can pipeline the output of various Get- cmdlets (for example, the Get-Mailbox or Get-User cmdlets) and configure several mailboxes in a single-line command. You can also use the Set-Mailbox cmdlet in scripts.

The AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom parameter specifies the mailbox users, mail users and mail contacts that can send e-mail messages to this mailbox. You can also specify Exchange as a valid recipient for this parameter. If you configure a mailbox to accept messages only from the Exchange recipient, it will only receive system-generated messages.

The AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom parameter can take any of the following values for the valid senders:

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical name

  • GUID

  • Name

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

Creating a Exchange 2007 mailbox through the Exchange 2003 extensions to the Active Directory Users and Computers console is not supported. If an Exchange 2007 mailbox is created with this tool, it will be identified as a legacy mailbox, even though it resides on an Exchange 2007 server. Use the ApplyMandatoryProperties parameter to modify the mandatory properties of a mailbox in this state to correct the problem and remove the legacyMailbox tag from the mailbox.

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.

CreateDTMFMap

Optional

System.Boolean

This parameter specifies that a dual tone multi-frequency (DTMF) map be created for the user.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller to use to write changes to Active Directory. Use the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that you want to use.

DowngradeHighPriorityMessagesEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The DowngradeHighPriorityMessagesEnabled parameter prevents the mailbox from sending high priority messages to an X.400 mail system. If this parameter is set to $true and the mailbox sends a high priority message destined to an X.400 mail system, the message priority is changed to normal priority.

EmailAddresses

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.ProxyAddressCollection

The EmailAddresses parameter specifies all the proxy addresses of the mailbox. It includes the primary Simple Mail Transfer Protocol (SMTP) address as one of the proxy addresses.

If you use this parameter, you cannot use the PrimarySMTPAddress parameter.

importantImportant:
Exchange 2007 does not validate custom addresses for correct formatting. You must make sure that the custom address that you specify complies with the format requirements for that address type. Because X.400 addresses are considered custom addresses in Exchange 2007, they are also not validated. Therefore, you must provide the correct syntax when you specify an X.400 address.

The GrantSendOnBehalfTo parameter specifies the distinguished name (DN) of other mailboxes that can send messages on behalf of this mailbox.

HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled parameter specifies whether this mailbox is hidden from other address lists. The two possible values for this parameter are $true or $false.

IgnoreDefaultScope

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The IgnoreDefaultScope parameter instructs the command to ignore the default recipient scope setting for the Exchange Management Shell and use the entire forest as the scope. This allows the command to access Active Directory objects that are not currently in the default scope. Using the IgnoreDefaultScope parameter introduces the following restrictions:

  • You cannot use the DomainController parameter. The command will use an appropriate global catalog server automatically.

  • You can only use the DN for the Identity parameter. Other forms of identification, such as alias or GUID, are not accepted.

Instance

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Directory.Management.Mailbox

The Instance parameter enables you to pass an entire object to the command to be processed. It is mainly used in scripts where an entire object must be passed to the command.

IssueWarningQuota

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Unlimited

LinkedMasterAccount

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.UserIdParameter

The LinkedMasterAccount parameter specifies the master account in the forest where the user account resides, if this mailbox is a linked mailbox. The master account is the account to which the mailbox links. The master account will grant access to the mailbox. You can use one of the following values:

  • GUID

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Domain\Account

  • User principal name (UPN)

  • LegacyExchangeDN

  • SmtpAddress

  • Alias

ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxPolicyIdParameter

The ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy parameter specifies a managed folder mailbox policy that controls messaging records management (MRM) for the mailbox. If the parameter is set to $null, Exchange removes the managed folder mailbox policy from the mailbox but any managed folders in the mailbox remain.

ManagedFolderMailboxPolicyAllowed

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The ManagedFolderMailboxPolicyAllowed parameter bypasses the warning that messaging records management (MRM) features are not supported for e-mail clients running versions of Outlook earlier than Outlook 2007. When a managed folder mailbox policy is assigned to a mailbox using the ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy parameter, the warning appears by default unless ManagedFolderMailboxPolicyAllowed is used.

Error Description

 

 

Exceptions Description

 

The first example shows how to forward John Peoples' e-mail messages to Jose De Oliveira's (jose@contoso.com) mailbox.

The second example uses the Get-Mailbox command to find all the mailboxes in the Marketing organizational unit (OU) and then uses the Set-Mailbox command to configure these mailboxes. The custom warning, prohibit send, and prohibit send and receive limits are set to 200 megabytes (MB), 250 MB, and 280 MB respectively, and the mailbox database's default limits are ignored. This command can be used to configure a specific set of mailboxes to have larger or smaller limits than other mailboxes in the organization.

The third example uses the Get-User command to find all users in the Customer Service department and then uses the Set-Mailbox command to change the maximum message size for sending messages to 2 MB.

Set-Mailbox -Identity John -DeliverToMailboxAndForward $true -ForwardingAddress jose@contoso.com 
Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "Marketing" | Set-Mailbox -IssueWarningQuota 209715200 -ProhibitSendQuota 262144000 -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota 293601280 -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $false 
Get-User -Filter "Department -eq 'Customer Service'" | Set-Mailbox -MaxSendSize 2097152
