Remove-MalwareFilterPolicy

Exchange 2013
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Online Protection, Exchange Online

Topic Last Modified: 2014-03-19

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 Remove-MalwareFilterPolicy cmdlet to remove malware filter policies from your organization.

NoteNote:
When a policy is removed and there are rules associated with it, the rules are not removed when the policy is removed. This is by design. If you want to remove the associated rules, you need to do this separately via the Remove-MalwareFilterRule cmdlet.

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

Remove-MalwareFilterPolicy -Identity <MalwareFilterPolicyIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example removes the malware filter policy named Contoso Malware Filter Policy

Remove-MalwareFilterPolicy "Contoso Malware Filter Policy"

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 "Anti-malware" entry in the Anti-spam and anti-malware permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MalwareFilterPolicyIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the malware filter policy you want to remove. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the policy. For example, you can use the name, GUID, or distinguished name (DN) of the malware filter policy.

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch can be used to suppress the confirmation prompt that appears by default when this cmdlet is run. To suppress the confirmation prompt, use the syntax -Confirm:$False. You must include a colon ( : ) in the syntax.

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.

Force

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Force switch specifies whether to suppress warning or confirmation messages. This switch can be used when the task is run programmatically and prompting for administrative input is inappropriate. If the Force switch isn't provided in the command, you're prompted for administrative input. You don't have to specify a value with this parameter.

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.
