This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell to disable e-mail for a mail contact in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007. This task disables e-mail for an existing mail contact object in the Active Directory directory service by removing its Exchange attributes.
|There are two types of mail contacts in Exchange 2007: mail contacts and mail forest contacts. Mail forest contacts are read-only recipient objects that are updated only through Microsoft Identity Integration Server (MIIS) or a similar custom synchronization. You cannot remove or modify a mail forest contact by using the Exchange Management Console or the Exchange Management Shell.|
To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:
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.
Start the Exchange Management Console.
In the console tree, expand Recipient Configuration, and then click Mail Contact.
In the result pane, select the mail contact that you want to disable.
In the action pane, under the name of the mail contact, click Disable.
In the warning that asks if you are sure that you want to disable e-mail for the mail contact, click Yes.
Run the following command:
Disable-MailContact -Identity "Ellen Adams" -DomainController Domain.Contoso.com
