Use the Set-ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy cmdlet to change the settings of a managed folder mailbox 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 "Messaging records management" entry in the Messaging Policy and Compliance Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the name, distinguished name (DN), or GUID of the managed folder mailbox policy.




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 ManagedFolderLinks parameter specifies managed folders to which the managed folder mailbox policy is to be linked. The managed folders that you link to a policy appear in all mailboxes to which the policy is applied.




The Name parameter specifies a unique name for the policy.




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.
