Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

You can use the EMC or the Shell to remove an offline address book (OAB).

Looking for other management tasks related to OABs? Check out Managing Offline Address Books.

noteNote:
After you remove an OAB that's linked to a user or to a mailbox database, the recipient will download the default OAB until you assign a new OAB for that user. If you remove the default OAB, you must assign a different OAB as the default OAB. For instructions about how to change the default OAB, see Change the Default Offline Address Book.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Offline address books" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

  1. In the console tree, navigate to Organization Configuration > Mailbox.
  2. In the result pane, click the Offline Address Book tab, and then click the OAB that you want to remove.
  3. In the action pane, click Remove. A warning appears. Click Yes to confirm that you want to remove the OAB.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Offline address books" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

To remove an OAB, use the following syntax.

Remove-OfflineAddressBook -Identity <OfflineAddressBookIdParameter>

This example removes an OAB named My OAB.

Remove-OfflineAddressBook -Identity "My OAB"

Type Y to confirm that you want to remove the OAB, and then press ENTER.

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Remove-OfflineAddressBook.
