Remove a Sharing Policy

Exchange 2010
 

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

Topic Last Modified: 2012-07-23

When you remove a sharing policy, the policy object is permanently removed from Active Directory. If you want to prevent a sharing policy from being used but retain the policy definition, you can disable the policy instead of removing it. When you disable a sharing policy, users associated with the sharing policy won't be able to share calendar or contact information with recipients from the domains specified in the sharing policy.

Before you remove a sharing policy, you must remove the policy from all users who have the policy applied.

noteNote:
The default sharing policy applies to all mailbox users who don't have an explicit sharing policy applied. The default sharing policy is enabled by default and allows users to share limited calendar availability (free/busy) information with recipients in all external federated domains. For more information about how to remove a sharing policy from a user mailbox, see Set-Mailbox.

Looking for other management tasks related to sharing policies? Check out Managing Federated Delegation.

Make sure no users are provisioned to use the sharing policy. You can use the Get-Mailbox cmdlet to retrieve mailboxes provisioned with a sharing policy. For details, see Apply a Sharing Policy to Mailboxes

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

  1. In the console tree, navigate to Organization Configuration > Mailbox.
  2. In the result pane, click the Sharing Policies tab, and then select the sharing policy you want to remove.
  3. In the action pane, click Remove. A dialog box appears asking if you want to remove the sharing policy. Click Yes.

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

This example removes the sharing policy Fabrikam.

Remove-SharingPolicy -Identity Fabrikam

This example removes the sharing policy Contoso and suppresses the confirmation that you want to remove the policy.

Remove-SharingPolicy -Identity Contoso -Confirm
