Disable a Sharing Policy
Applies to: Exchange Server 2010
Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19
Although you can't remove a sharing policy until all the users who are provisioned to use the policy have the sharing policy setting removed from their mailboxes, you can disable the policy. When you disable a sharing policy, users who are provisioned to use the sharing policy won't be able to view or share calendar and contact information with the external domains specified in the policy.
|When the sharing policy is disabled, users provisioned to use the policy will continue to share information until the Sharing Policy Assistant runs. To specify how often the Sharing Policy Assistant runs, use the Set-MailboxServer cmdlet with the SharingPolicySchedule parameter.|

In the result pane, click the Sharing Policies tab, and then select the sharing policy you want to disable.
In the action pane, click Properties.
On the General tab, clear the Enable sharing policy check box.
Click Apply to disable the sharing policy.
