Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

Use the Enable-InboxRule cmdlet to enable an Inbox rule. Inbox rules are used to process messages in the Inbox based on conditions specified and take actions such as moving a message to a specified folder or deleting a message.


Enable-InboxRule -Identity <InboxRuleIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-Mailbox <MailboxIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.InboxRuleIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the display name or GUID of the Inbox rule.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch 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 switch.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Force switch specifies whether to suppress the confirmation prompt produced if rules created by Outlook exist on the mailbox. When taking an action using Inbox rules on Exchange 2010, any client-side rules are removed.

Mailbox

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter

The Mailbox parameter specifies the identity of the mailbox where the Inbox rule is located. You can use one of the following values:

  • GUID

  • LegacyExchangeDN
  • SmtpAddress
  • Alias

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.
