Enable-UMMailbox (RTM)

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2007

Topic Last Modified: 2007-06-11

The Enable-UMMailbox cmdlet enables Unified Messaging (UM) for an existing mail-enabled user.


Enable-UMMailbox -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> -UMMailboxPolicy <MailboxPolicyIdParameter> [-AutomaticSpeechRecognitionEnabled <$true | $false>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Extensions <MultiValuedProperty>] [-NotifyEmail <String>] [-PilotNumber <String>] [-Pin <String>] [-PinExpired <$true | $false>] [-SIPResourceIdentifier <String>] [-ValidateOnly <SwitchParameter>]

The Enable-UMMailbox cmdlet enables Unified Messaging for an existing mail-enabled Exchange 2007 user. When the mail-enabled user is enabled for Unified Messaging, the settings from a UM mailbox policy are applied to the user. After the user is enabled for Unified Messaging, they can use the UM features that are included with Exchange 2007.

To run the Enable-UMMailbox cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange Recipient Administrator role

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.
