Applies to: Exchange Server 2007 SP1, Exchange Server 2007 SP2, Exchange Server 2007 SP3

The New-UMMailboxPolicy cmdlet creates a new Unified Messaging (UM) mailbox policy.

New-UMMailboxPolicy -Name <String> -UMDialPlan <UMDialPlanIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-TemplateInstance <PSObject>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The New-UMMailboxPolicy cmdlet creates a new UM mailbox policy that has organization-wide scope. UM mailbox policies provide a set of policy values to be applied to UM-enabled users who are associated with a particular UM dial plan. UM mailbox policies are directly associated with UM dial plans. Therefore, the settings that are contained within a UM mailbox policy apply only to UM-enabled users of the UM dial plan to which the UM mailbox policy is associated. You can also use the New-UMMailboxPolicy cmdlet to create a UM mailbox policy template that can be used to create additional UM mailbox policies.

To run the New-UMMailboxPolicy cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Organization Administrator role.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, see Permission Considerations.


Parameter Required Type Description




This parameter specifies the display name for the UM mailbox policy. The name for the UM mailbox policy can contain as many as 64 characters.




This parameter specifies the identifier for the UM dial plan to be associated with the UM mailbox policy. This parameter is the directory object ID for the UM dial plan.




This parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires the administrator to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. The default value is $true.




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




This parameter specifies that the cmdlet will use the configuration of an existing object, when that object is supplied to this parameter, to create an identical copy of the object on a local or target server.




This parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, the administrator can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. The default value is $true.
