Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration

 

Applies to: Exchange Online, Exchange Server 2016

This cmdlet is available in on-premises Exchange Server 2016 and in the cloud-based service. Some parameters and settings may be exclusive to one environment or the other.

Use the Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration cmdlet to modify the regional settings of a mailbox. You can modify the date format, time format, time zone, and language of the mailbox.

For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Exchange cmdlet syntax.

Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DateFormat <String>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Language <CultureInfo>] [-LocalizeDefaultFolderName <SwitchParameter>] [-TimeFormat <String>] [-TimeZone <ExTimeZoneValue>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example sets Marcelo Teixeira's mailbox language to Brazilian Portuguese, and localizes the default folder names in Portuguese.

Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -Identity "Marcelo Teixeira" -Language pt-br -LocalizeDefaultFolderName

This example sets the date format for Ella Lack's mailbox.

Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -Identity "Ella Lack's" -DateFormat "d/m/yyyy"

This example sets Alice Jakobsen's mailbox language to Danish Denmark, sets the date in the day/month/year format, and localizes the default folder names in Danish.

Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -Identity "Alice Jakobsen" -Language da-dk -DateFormat "dd-mm-yyyy" -LocalizeDefaultFolderName

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 "Spelling configuration" entry in the Recipients Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the mailbox that you want to modify. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the mailbox.

For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical DN

  • <domain name>\<account name>

  • Email address

  • GUID

  • LegacyExchangeDN

  • SamAccountName

  • User ID or user principal name (UPN)

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

DateFormat

Optional

System.String

The DateFormat parameter specifies the date format based on the current or specified language for the mailbox. For example, if the language is set to en-US, valid DateFormat parameter values include:

  • M/d/yyyy   This is the default value for en-US.

  • M/d/yy

  • MM/dd/yy

  • MM/dd/yyyy

  • yy/MM/dd

  • yyyy-MM-dd

  • dd-MMM-yy

For more information about the date format strings, see Standard Date and Time Format Strings.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2016.

The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller that's used by this cmdlet to read data from or write data to Active Directory. You identify the domain controller by its fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example, dc01.contoso.com.

Language

Optional

System.Globalization.CultureInfo

The Language parameter specifies the language for the mailbox.

Valid input for this parameter is a supported culture code value from the Microsoft .NET Framework CultureInfo class. For example, en for English or fr for French. For more information, see CultureInfo Class.

LocalizeDefaultFolderName

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The LocalizeDefaultFolderName switch localizes the default folder names of the mailbox in the current or specified language. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

TimeFormat

Optional

System.String

The TimeFormat parameter specifies the time format based on the current or specified language value for the mailbox. For example, if the language is set to en-us, valid TimeFormat parameter values include:

  • h:mm tt   This is the default value for en-US.

  • hh:mm tt

  • H:mm

  • HH:mm

For more information about the time format strings, see Standard Date and Time Format Strings.

TimeZone

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Storage.Management.ExTimeZoneValue

The TimeZone parameter specifies the time zone for the mailbox.

A valid value for this parameter is a supported time zone key name (for example, "Pacific Standard Time").

To see the available values, run the following command: $TimeZone = Get-ChildItem "HKLM:\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Time zones" | foreach {Get-ItemProperty $_.PSPath}; $TimeZone | sort Display | Format-Table -Auto PSChildname,Display

If the value contains spaces, enclose the value in quotation marks ("). The default value is the time zone setting of the Exchange server.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The WhatIf switch simulates the actions of the command. You can use this switch to view the changes that would occur without actually applying those changes. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.
