Clear-TextMessagingAccount -Identity <MailboxIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-IgnoreDefaultScope <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example clears the text messaging account settings and notification settings from Tony Smith's mailbox.

Clear-TextMessagingAccount -Identity "TonySmith"

This example clears the text messaging account settings and notification settings from Tony Smith's mailbox and displays a confirmation message.

Clear-TextMessagingAccount -Identity "Contoso\TonySmith" -Confirm $true

Clear-TextMessagingAccount -Identity "tony@contoso.com"

The Clear-TextMessagingAccount cmdlet clears all of a user's text messaging settings, including communication and notification settings.

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.MailboxIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the target mailbox. You can use one of the following values:

  • CommonName

  • DisplayName

  • FirstName

  • LastName

  • Alias

Confirm

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

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.

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange 2013.

The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.

IgnoreDefaultScope

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The IgnoreDefaultScope parameter instructs the command to ignore the default recipient scope setting for the Exchange Management Shell session and use the entire forest as the scope. This allows the command to access Active Directory objects that aren't currently in the default scope. Using the IgnoreDefaultScope parameter introduces the following restrictions:

  • You can't use the DomainController parameter. The command uses an appropriate global catalog server automatically.

WhatIf

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

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.
