New-MailMessage

 

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 New-MailMessage cmdlet to create an email message for the specified user mailbox and place the email message in the Drafts folder of the user's mailbox.

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

New-MailMessage [-Body <String>] [-BodyFormat <PlainText | Html | Rtf>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Subject <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

This example creates an email message in the Drafts folder with the subject and body specified by the Subject and Body parameters. The message body is rendered in plain text because no format for the message body is specified.

New-MailMessage -Subject "Delivery Report" -Body "Click here to view this report"

This example creates an empty email message in the Drafts folder because no subject or message body is specified.

New-MailMessage

This example creates an email message in the Drafts folder with the subject and body specified by the Subject and Body parameters. The message body is rendered in HTML format.

New-MailMessage -Subject "Delivery Information" -Body "Click here to see details" -BodyFormat Html

If the cmdlet is run without specifying the Subject or Body parameters, an empty email message is placed in the user's Drafts folder.

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 "User mailboxes" entry in the Recipients Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Body

Optional

System.String

The Body parameter specifies the content of the body section of the new email message.

BodyFormat

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Providers.MailBodyFormat

The BodyFormat parameter specifies the format of the message body. The values can be PlainText, Rtf (Rich Text Format), or Html. By default, if the BodyFormat parameter isn't specified when the Body parameter is used, the message body is rendered in plain text.

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.

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.

Subject

Optional

System.String

The Subject parameter specifies the content of the subject field of the new email message.

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.
