Configure Organizational Settings for MailTips

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010

Topic Last Modified: 2011-03-19

MailTips are informative messages displayed to users while they compose a message. Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 analyzes the message, including the list of recipients to which it's addressed. If a potential problem is detected, MailTips notify users prior to sending the message. With the help of the information provided by MailTips, senders can adjust the message they are composing to avoid undesirable situations or non-delivery reports (NDRs). To learn more about MailTips, see Understanding MailTips.

You can configure various settings that define how you use MailTips in your organization.

You can't use the EMC to enable or disable the External Recipients MailTip.

When enabled, senders are notified that the message will leave your organization if they add an external recipient or a distribution group that contains external recipients. By default, the External Recipients MailTip is disabled.

Dd638109.note(en-us,EXCHG.140).gifNote:
The External Recipients MailTip relies on Group Metrics data. Therefore, if you enable the External Recipients MailTip, make sure that the Group Metrics MailTip is also enabled.

Depending on the communications profile of your organization, you may want to enable or disable the External Recipients MailTip. For example, travel agencies may choose to disable the External Recipients MailTip because most of their communication is with people outside their organization. In contrast, law firms may want to enable this to ensure that the senders are aware when information is being shared outside the firm.

You use the Set-OrganizationConfig cmdlet to enable or disable the External Recipients MailTip in your organization. This example enables the External Recipients MailTip.

Set-OrganizationConfig -MailTipsExternalRecipientsTipsEnabled $true

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-OrganizationConfig.
