Use the Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy cmdlet to remove a specific Microsoft Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy from a computer running Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 that has the Client Access server role installed.

remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy -Identity <MailboxPolicyIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the policy name.




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.




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




The Force parameter specifies that the command should run immediately and bypass confirmation prompts.




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.

An Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy is a group of settings that specifies how mobile phones connect to Exchange. Exchange supports multiple Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policies. The Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy cmdlet enables you to remove a specific Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy from the Client Access server. If any users are assigned to the policy when you remove it, the Remove-ActiveSyncMailboxPolicy cmdlet fails.

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 "Exchange ActiveSync mailbox policy settings" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.
