This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell to set or change the Unified Messaging (UM) properties for an existing Exchange Server 2007 recipient who is UM-enabled. When you change a user's UM properties, you can control various UM features found in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007.

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Recipient Administrator role.

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

Also, before you perform these procedures, confirm the following:

  • The existing Exchange recipient has an Exchange Server 2007 mailbox.

  • The existing Exchange Server 2007 recipient is enabled for UM.

  • A UM dial plan has been created.

  • A UM mailbox policy has been created.

  • The extension number assigned to the UM user is valid according to the UM dial plan that is defined.

  1. In the console root of the Exchange Management Console, expand the Recipient Configuration node.

  2. In the result pane, select the user's mailbox that you want to view.

  3. In the action pane, click Properties.

  4. In the Mailbox Features tab, click Unified Messaging, and then click Properties.

  5. In the Unified Messaging Properties window, configure the appropriate settings, and then click OK to accept your changes.

  • Run the following command:

Set-UMMailbox -Identity -UMEnabled $true -DialPlan ContosoDomain -UMPolicy AdminPolicy -Extension 523456 -FAXEnabled $true -TUIAccessToCal $false -TUIAccessToEmail True
