Configure the Number of Previous PINs to Disallow on a UM Mailbox Policy

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

When Outlook Voice Access users dial in to a subscriber access number, they're prompted to enter their PIN so that the Unified Messaging (UM) system in Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 can authenticate them. After they're authenticated, they can access the voice mail, e-mail, calendaring, and personal contact information in their Exchange 2007 mailbox from any telephone.

Several PIN-related settings can be configured on a UM mailbox policy. The Number of previous PINs to disallow setting specifies the number of unique PINs users need to use before they can reuse an old PIN. You can set the value of this setting between 1 and 20. For most organizations, this value should be set to the default, 5 PINs.Setting this value too high can frustrate users because it can be difficult for users to create and memorize many PINs. Setting it too low may introduce a security threat to your network.

importantImportant:
The PIN history can't be disabled.
