The .NET service channel is introduced in Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Service Pack 1 (SP1). This channel enables Exchange Server 2007 to store information that it will later forward to applications or devices that are not permanently connected to the Exchange server computer. The Enable-ServiceEmailChannel cmdlet enables the .NET service channel for a specific user. This cmdlet creates a receive folder in the user's mailbox under the root folder named Service E-mail.

Enable-ServiceEmailChannel -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

To run the Enable-ServiceEmailChannel cmdlet, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Server Administrator role and membership in the local Administrators group for the target server.

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


Parameter Required Type Description




This parameter specifies the identity of the user for which you want to enable the .NET channel service. The user who is specified must be a valid user in the Active Directory directory service who has an Exchange 2007 mailbox.




The Confirm parameter causes the command to pause processing and requires that you acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You do not have to specify a value with the Confirm parameter. The default value is $true.




To specify the fully qualified domain name of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory include the DomainController parameter on the command.




The WhatIf parameter instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf parameter, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You do not have to specify a value with the WhatIf parameter.
