When run, the Set-MailboxMessageConfiguration cmdlet modifies e-mail message settings for the specified mailbox. Settings include e-mail signature, message format, message options, read receipts, reading pane, and conversations.

The DefaultFontFlags parameter specifies the font effect on the text composed in the message form for the specified mailbox. Accepted values are as follows:

  • Normal

This allows the command to access Active Directory objects that aren't currently in the default scope. Using the IgnoreDefaultScope parameter introduces the following restrictions:

  • You can't use the DomainController parameter. The command uses an appropriate global catalog server automatically.
  • You can only use the DN for the Identity parameter. Other forms of identification, such as alias or GUID, aren't accepted.

SendAddressDefault

Optional

System.String

This parameter applies to objects in the cloud-based service. It isn’t available for on-premises deployments.

The SendAddressDefault parameter specifies the default From e-mail address when the user has POP, IMAP, or Hotmail subscriptions configured on their mailbox. The user can override the default From address when they create an e-mail message in Outlook Web App.

You can use one of the following values for SendAddressDefault:

  • Blank, which is represented by the value $null. This indicates no default From address is specified.
  • The user's primary e-mail address. For example, bob@contoso.com.
  • The GUID of a POP, IMAP, or Hotmail subscription that's configured on the user's mailbox.

By default, no default From address is specified on the mailbox. When no default From address is specified, the default behavior is:

  • The primary e-mail address on the mailbox is used for all new messages.
  • The To address of the incoming message is used as the From address for all replies or forwarded messages.

You can find the available values for SendAddressDefault on a mailbox by running the command Get-SendAddress -Mailbox <mailbox>.

The content supports all Unicode characters.

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.

To see the input types that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Input Type field for a cmdlet is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t accept input data.

To see the return types, which are also known as output types, that this cmdlet accepts, see Cmdlet Input and Output Types. If the Output Type field is blank, the cmdlet doesn’t return data.

This example enables an e-mail signature to be added automatically to messages sent from Kai's mailbox.

Set-MailboxMessageConfiguration -Identity kai -AutoAddSignature $True

This example sets items deleted from a conversation thread to not show in the list view of the conversation in Kai's mailbox.

Set-MailboxMessageConfiguration -Identity kai -HideDeletedItems $True

This example sets the compose e-mail message form to show the bcc field always for Kai's mailbox.

Set-MailboxMessageConfiguration -Identity kai -AlwaysShowBcc $True
