Remove-OwaMailboxPolicy -Identity <MailboxPolicyIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Force <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The Remove-OwaMailboxPolicy cmdlet removes an existing Outlook Web App 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 "Outlook Web App mailbox policies" entry in the Client Access Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the name of the policy or the path to the policy including the name, for example, <Organization>\<ResellerA>\<Reseller…n>\<Tenant>\<Object 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 whether to suppress the warning or confirmation messages that appear during specific configuration changes.




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.
