This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange Server 2013 and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other.

Use the Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration cmdlet to configure Automatic Replies settings for a specific mailbox.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.

Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> [-AutoReplyState <Disabled | Enabled | Scheduled>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-EndTime <DateTime>] [-ExternalAudience <None | Known | All>] [-ExternalMessage <String>] [-IgnoreDefaultScope <SwitchParameter>] [-InternalMessage <String>] [-StartTime <DateTime>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example configures Automatic Replies for Tony's mailbox to be sent between the specified start and end dates and includes an internal message.

Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration -Identity tony -AutoReplyState Scheduled -StartTime "7/10/2012 08:00:00" -EndTime "7/15/2012 17:00:00" -InternalMessage "Internal auto-reply message"

This example configures Automatic Replies for Tony's mailbox to be sent and includes an internal and an external message.

Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration -Identity tony -AutoReplyState Enabled -InternalMessage "Internal auto-reply message." -ExternalMessage "External auto-reply message."

You can disable Automatic Replies for a specified mailbox or organization.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Automatic replies" entry in the Recipients permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies a unique identifier associated with a mailbox. You can use any value that uniquely identifies a mailbox. Accepted values for the mailbox are as follows:

  • GUID

  • ADObjectID

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Domain\Account

  • User principal name (UPN)

  • LegacyExchangeDN

  • SmtpAddress

  • Alias

AutoReplyState

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.InfoWorker.Common.OOF.OofState

The AutoReplyState parameter specifies whether the mailbox is enabled for Automatic Replies. Accepted values are as follows:

  • Enabled   If you use this value, auto-replies are sent until the value is changed to Disabled.

  • Disabled   This is the default value.

  • Scheduled   If you use this value, you must also specify the StartTime and EndTime parameters.

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

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

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

EndTime

Optional

System.DateTime

The EndTime parameter specifies the end date and time that Automatic Replies are sent for the specified mailbox. To use this parameter, the AutoReplyState parameter must be set to Scheduled.

ExternalAudience

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.InfoWorker.Common.OOF.ExternalAudience

The ExternalAudience parameter specifies whether Automatic Replies are sent to external senders. Accepted values are as follows:

  • None   This is the default value.

  • Known

  • All

ExternalMessage

Optional

System.String

The ExternalMessage parameter specifies the Automatic Replies message that's sent to external senders or senders outside the organization.

IgnoreDefaultScope

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The IgnoreDefaultScope parameter instructs the command to ignore the default recipient scope setting for the Exchange Management Shell session and use the entire forest as the scope. 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.

InternalMessage

Optional

System.String

The InternalMessage parameter specifies the Automatic Replies message that's sent to internal senders or senders within the organization.

StartTime

Optional

System.DateTime

The StartTime parameter specifies the start date and time that Automatic Replies are sent for the specified mailbox. To use this parameter, the AutoReplyState parameter must be set to Scheduled.

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.
