Use the Enable-UMCallAnsweringRule cmdlet to enable a call answering rule that has been created within a UM-enabled mailbox.

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

Enable-UMCallAnsweringRule -Identity <UMCallAnsweringRuleIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Mailbox <MailboxIdParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example enables the call answering rule MyUMCallAnsweringRule in the mailbox for Tony Smith.

Enable-UMCallAnsweringRule -Identity MyUMCallAnsweringRule -Mailbox tonysmith

The example uses the WhatIf switch to test whether the call answering rule MyUMCallAnsweringRule in the mailbox for Tony Smith is ready to be enabled and if there are any errors within the command.

Enable-UMCallAnsweringRule -Identity MyUMCallAnsweringRule -Mailbox tonysmith -WhatIf

This example enables the call answering rule MyUMCallAnsweringRule in the mailbox for Tony Smith and prompts the logged-on user to confirm that the call answering rule is to be enabled.

Enable-UMCallAnsweringRule -Identity MyUMCallAnsweringRule -Mailbox tonysmith -Confirm

The Enable-UMCallAnsweringRule cmdlet enables the call answering rule by modifying its status variable. When the call answering rule is created, it's enabled. This cmdlet allows you to enable a previously disabled call answering rule. Enabling a call answering rule enables the cmdlet to retrieve the call answering rule including the conditions and actions for a specified call answering rule.

After this task is completed, the cmdlet sets the parameters and values specified. When you enable a call answering rule, the call answering rule is processed when an incoming call is received.

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 "UM call answering rules" entry in the Unified Messaging Permissions topic.
