Set-RemoteMailbox

 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2016

Topic Last Modified: 2016-09-19

This cmdlet is available only in on-premises Exchange Server 2016.

Use the Set-RemoteMailbox cmdlet to modify remote mailboxes. A remote mailbox is a mail user in Active Directory that's associated with a mailbox in the cloud-based service.

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

Set-RemoteMailbox -Identity <RemoteMailboxIdParameter> [-AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom <MultiValuedProperty>] [-AcceptMessagesOnlyFromDLMembers <MultiValuedProperty>] [-AcceptMessagesOnlyFromSendersOrMembers <MultiValuedProperty>] [-ACLableSyncedObjectEnabled <SwitchParameter>] [-Alias <String>] [-ArchiveGuid <Guid>] [-ArchiveName <MultiValuedProperty>] [-BypassModerationFromSendersOrMembers <MultiValuedProperty>] [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-CustomAttribute1 <String>] [-CustomAttribute10 <String>] [-CustomAttribute11 <String>] [-CustomAttribute12 <String>] [-CustomAttribute13 <String>] [-CustomAttribute14 <String>] [-CustomAttribute15 <String>] [-CustomAttribute2 <String>] [-CustomAttribute3 <String>] [-CustomAttribute4 <String>] [-CustomAttribute5 <String>] [-CustomAttribute6 <String>] [-CustomAttribute7 <String>] [-CustomAttribute8 <String>] [-CustomAttribute9 <String>] [-DisplayName <String>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-EmailAddresses <ProxyAddressCollection>] [-EmailAddressPolicyEnabled <$true | $false>] [-ExchangeGuid <Guid>] [-ExtensionCustomAttribute1 <MultiValuedProperty>] [-ExtensionCustomAttribute2 <MultiValuedProperty>] [-ExtensionCustomAttribute3 <MultiValuedProperty>] [-ExtensionCustomAttribute4 <MultiValuedProperty>] [-ExtensionCustomAttribute5 <MultiValuedProperty>] [-GrantSendOnBehalfTo <MultiValuedProperty>] [-HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled <$true | $false>] [-IgnoreDefaultScope <SwitchParameter>] [-ImmutableId <String>] [-MailTip <String>] [-MailTipTranslations <MultiValuedProperty>] [-ModeratedBy <MultiValuedProperty>] [-ModerationEnabled <$true | $false>] [-Name <String>] [-PrimarySmtpAddress <SmtpAddress>] [-RecoverableItemsQuota <Unlimited>] [-RecoverableItemsWarningQuota <Unlimited>] [-RejectMessagesFrom <MultiValuedProperty>] [-RejectMessagesFromDLMembers <MultiValuedProperty>] [-RejectMessagesFromSendersOrMembers <MultiValuedProperty>] [-RemoteRoutingAddress <ProxyAddress>] [-RemovePicture <SwitchParameter>] [-RemoveSpokenName <SwitchParameter>] [-RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled <$true | $false>] [-ResetPasswordOnNextLogon <$true | $false>] [-SamAccountName <String>] [-SendModerationNotifications <Never | Internal | Always>] [-Type <Regular | Room | Equipment>] [-UserPrincipalName <String>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]] [-WindowsEmailAddress <SmtpAddress>]

This example configures the mailbox in the service that's associated with the specified mail user as a room resource mailbox. This example assumes that directory synchronization has been configured.

Set-RemoteMailbox davids -Type Room

This example configures delivery restrictions for the mailbox in the service that's associated with the specified mail user. This example assumes that directory synchronization has been configured.

Set-RemoteMailbox kima -AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom davids, "Executive Team", bill@contoso.com

The Set-RemoteMailbox cmdlet configures Exchange attributes for an on-premises mail user. The configuration set on the on-premises mail user is synchronized to its associated mailbox in the service.

noteNote:
Some attributes on mailboxes in the service can only be configured by connecting to the service and using the Set-Mailbox cmdlet.

Directory synchronization must be configured correctly for changes made to an on-premises mail user to be applied to a mailbox in the service. Changing the configuration of the mailbox in the service isn't immediate and depends on the directory synchronization schedule.

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 "Remote mailboxes" entry in the Recipients Permissions topic.

 

Parameter Required Type Description

Identity

Required

Microsoft.Exchange.Configuration.Tasks.RemoteMailboxIdParameter

The Identity parameter specifies the remote mailbox (mail user) that you want to modify. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the mail user. For example:

  • ADObjectID

  • GUID

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Domain\SamAccountName

  • User principal name (UPN)

  • Legacy DN

  • Email address

  • User alias

AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom parameter specifies who is allowed to send messages to this recipient. Messages from other senders are rejected.

Valid values for this parameter are individual senders in your organization (mailboxes, mail users, and mail contacts). You can use any value that uniquely identifies the sender. For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical DN

  • Email address

  • GUID

You can enter multiple senders separated by commas. To overwrite any existing entries, use the following syntax: <sender1>,<senter2>.... If the values contain spaces or otherwise require quotation marks, use the following syntax: "<sender1>","<sender2>"....

To add or remove senders without affecting other existing entries, use the following syntax: @{Add="<sender1>","<sender2>"...; Remove="<sender1>","<sender2>"...}.

The senders you specify for this parameter are automatically copied to the AcceptMessagesOnlyFromSendersOrMembers property. Therefore, you can't use the AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom and AcceptMessagesOnlyFromSendersOrMembers parameters in the same command.

By default, this parameter is blank ($null), which allows this recipient to accept messages from all senders.

AcceptMessagesOnlyFromDLMembers

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The AcceptMessagesOnlyFromDLMembers parameter specifies who is allowed to send messages to this recipient. Messages from other senders are rejected.

Valid values for this parameter are groups in your organization (distribution groups, mail-enabled security groups, and dynamic distribution groups). Specifying a group means all members of the group are allowed to send messages to this recipient. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the group. For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical DN

  • Email address

  • GUID

You can enter multiple groups separated by commas. To overwrite any existing entries, use the following syntax: <group1>,<group2>.... If the values contain spaces or otherwise require quotation marks, use the following syntax: "<group1>","<group2>"....

To add or remove groups without affecting other existing entries, use the following syntax: @{Add="<group1>","<group2>"...; Remove="<group1>","<group2>"...}.

The groups you specify for this parameter are automatically copied to the AcceptMessagesOnlyFromSendersOrMembers property. Therefore, you can't use the AcceptMessagesOnlyFromDLMembers and AcceptMessagesOnlyFromSendersOrMembers parameters in the same command.

By default, this parameter is blank ($null), which allows this recipient to accept messages from all groups.

AcceptMessagesOnlyFromSendersOrMembers

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The AcceptMessagesOnlyFromSendersOrMembers parameter specifies who is allowed to send messages to this recipient. Messages from other senders are rejected.

Valid values for this parameter are individual senders and groups in your organization. Individual senders are mailboxes, mail users, and mail contacts. Groups are distribution groups, mail-enabled security groups, and dynamic distribution groups. Specifying a group means all members of the group are allowed to send messages to this recipient.

To specify senders for this parameter, you can use any value that uniquely identifies the sender. For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical DN

  • Email address

  • GUID

You can enter multiple senders separated by commas. To overwrite any existing entries, use the following syntax: <sender1>,<senter2>.... If the values contain spaces or otherwise require quotation marks, use the following syntax: "<sender1>","<sender2>"....

To add or remove individual senders or groups without affecting other existing entries, use the AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom and AcceptMessageOnlyFromDLMembers parameters.

The individual senders and groups you specify for this parameter are automatically copied to the AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom and AcceptMessagesOnlyFromDLMembers properties, respectively. Therefore, you can't use the AcceptMessagesOnlyFromSendersOrMembers parameter and the AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom or AcceptMessagesOnlyFromDLMembers parameters in the same command.

By default, this parameter is blank ($null), which allows this recipient to accept messages from all senders.

ACLableSyncedObjectEnabled

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

PARAMVALUE: SwitchParameter

Alias

Optional

System.String

The Alias parameter specifies the Exchange alias (also known as the mail nickname) for the recipient. This value identifies the recipient as a mail-enabled object, and shouldn't be confused with multiple email addresses for the same recipient (also known as proxy addresses). A recipient can have only one Alias value.

The value of Alias can contain letters, numbers and the characters !, #, $, %, &, ', *, +, -, /, =, ?, ^, _, `, {, |, } and ~. Periods (.) are allowed, but each period must be surrounded by other valid characters (for example, help.desk). Unicode characters from U+00A1 to U+00FF are also allowed. The maximum length of the Alias value is 64 characters.

When you create a recipient without specifying an email address, the Alias value you specify is used to generate the primary email address (<alias>@<domain>). Supported Unicode characters are mapped to best-fit US-ASCII text characters. For example, U+00F6 (ö) is changed to oe in the primary email address.

If you don't use the Alias parameter when you create a recipient, the value of a different required parameter is used for the Alias property value:

  • Recipients with user accounts (for example, user mailboxes, and mail users)   The left side of the MicrosoftOnlineServicesID or UserPrincipalName parameter is used. For example, helpdesk@contoso.com results in the Alias property value helpdesk.

  • Recipeints without user accounts (for example, room mailboxes, mail contacts, and distribution groups)   The value of the Name parameter is used. Spaces are removed and unsupported characters are converted to question marks (?).

If you modify the Alias value of an existing recipient, the primary email address is automatically updated only in on-premises environments where the recipient is subject to email address policies (the EmailAddressPolicyEnabled property is True for the recipient).

noteNote:
The Alias parameter never generates or updates the primary email address of a mail contact or a mail user.

ArchiveGuid

Optional

System.Guid

This parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

ArchiveName

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The ArchiveName parameter specifies the name of the archive mailbox. Use this parameter to change the name of the archive.

BypassModerationFromSendersOrMembers

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The BypassModerationFromSendersOrMembers parameter specifies who is allowed to send messages to this moderated recipient without approval from a moderator. Valid values for this parameter are individual senders and groups in your organization. Specifying a group means all members of the group are allowed to send messages to this recipient without approval from a moderator.

To specify senders for this parameter, you can use any value that uniquely identifies the sender. For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical DN

  • Email address

  • GUID

To enter multiple senders and overwrite any existing entries, use the following syntax: <sender1>,<sender2>.... If the values contain spaces or otherwise require quotation marks, use the following syntax: "<sender1>","<sender2>"....

To add or remove one or more senders without affecting any existing entries, use the following syntax: @{Add="<sender1>","<sender2>"...; Remove="<sender3>","<sender4>"...}.

This parameter is meaningful only when moderation is enabled for the recipient. By default, this parameter is blank ($null), which means messages from all senders other than the designated moderators are moderated. When a moderator sends a message to this recipient, the message is isn't moderated. In other words, you don't need to use this parameter to include the moderators.

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.

The CustomAttribute1 to CustomAttribute15 parameters specify custom attributes. You can use these attributes to store additional information.

CustomAttribute10

Optional

System.String

The CustomAttribute1 to CustomAttribute15 parameters specify custom attributes. You can use these attributes to store additional information.

DisplayName

Optional

System.String

The DisplayName parameter specifies the display name for the mail user. The display name is visible in the Exchange admin center, address lists, and Outlook. The maximum length is 256 characters. If the value contains spaces, enclose the value in quotation marks (").

DomainController

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Fqdn

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.

EmailAddresses

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.ProxyAddressCollection

The EmailAddresses parameter specifies all the email addresses (proxy addresses) for the recipient, including the primary SMTP address. In on-premises Exchange organizations, the primary SMTP address and other proxy addresses are typically set by email address policies. However, you can use this parameter to configure other proxy addresses for the recipient. For more information, see Email address policies in Exchange 2016.

Valid syntax for this parameter is [<Type>]:<emailaddress1>,[<Type>]:<emailaddress2>.... The optional <Type> value specifies the type of email address. Some examples of valid values include:

  • SMTP   The primary SMTP address. You can use this value only once in a command.

  • smtp   Other SMTP email addresses.

  • X400   X.400 addresses in on-premises Exchange.

  • X500   X.500 addresses in on-premises Exchange.

If you don't include a <Type> value for an email address, the value smtp is assumed. Note that Exchange doesn't validate the syntax of custom address types (including X.400 addresses). Therefore, you need to verify that any custom addresses are formatted correctly.

To specify the primary SMTP email address, you can use any of the following methods:

  • Use the <Type> value SMTP on the address.

  • The first email address when you don't use any <Type> values, or when you use multiple <Type> values of smtp.

  • If it's available, use the PrimarySmtpAddress parameter instead. You can't use the EmailAddresses parameter and the PrimarySmtpAddress parameter in the same command.

To replace all existing proxy email addresses with the values you specify, use the following syntax: "[<Type>]:<emailaddress1>","[<Type>]:<emailaddress2>"....

To add or remove specify proxy addresses without affecting other existing values, use the following syntax: @{Add="[<Type>]:<emailaddress1>","[<Type>]:<emailaddress2>"...; Remove="[<Type>]:<emailaddress2>","[<Type>]:<emailaddress2>"...}.

EmailAddressPolicyEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The EmailAddressPolicyEnabled parameter specifies whether to apply email address policies to this recipient. Valid values are:

  • $true   All applicable email address policies are applied to this recipient. This is the default value.

  • $false   No email address policies are applied to this recipient.

ExchangeGuid

Optional

System.Guid

The ExchangeGuid parameter specifies the ExchangeGuid property value of the mail user, which should match the ExchangeGuid value of the corresponding cloud mailbox.

The ExchangeGuid property is a unique Exchange mailbox identifier, and corresponds to the msExchMailboxGuid attribute in Active Directory. An example value is d5a0bd9b-4e95-49b5-9736-14fde1eec1e3. Although the syntax is the same, this value is different than the GUID property value, which corresponds to the objectGUID attribute in Active Directory.

ExtensionCustomAttribute1

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The ExtensionCustomAttribute1-5 parameters specify custom attributes that store additional information. You can specify multiple values for these parameters as a comma delimited list. Each ExtensionCustomAttribute parameter can hold up to 1,300 values.

For more information about custom attributes, see Custom attributes.

For more information about using multivalued properties, see Modifying multivalued properties.

GrantSendOnBehalfTo

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The GrantSendOnBehalfTo parameter specifies who can send on behalf of this remote mailbox (mail user). Although messages send on behalf of the mail user clearly show the sender in the From field (<Sender> on behalf of <Mail user>), replies to these messages are delivered to the mail user, not the sender.

The sender you specify for this parameter must a mailbox, mail user or mail-enabled security group (a mail-enabled security principal that can have permissions assigned). You can use any value that uniquely identifies the sender.

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)

To enter multiple values and overwrite any existing entries, use the following syntax: <value1>,<value2>.... If the values contain spaces or otherwise require quotation marks, you need to use the following syntax: "<value1>","<value2>"....

To add or remove one or more values without affecting any existing entries, use the following syntax: @{Add="<value1>","<value2>"...; Remove="<value1>","<value2>"...}.

By default, this parameter is blank, which means no one else has permission to send on behalf of this mail user.

HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled parameter specifies whether this recipient is visible in address lists. Valid values are:

  • $true   The recipient isn't visible in address lists.

  • $false   The recipient is visible in address lists. This is the default value.

IgnoreDefaultScope

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The IgnoreDefaultScope switch tells the command to ignore the default recipient scope setting for the Exchange Management Shell session, and to use the entire forest as the scope. This allows the command to access Active Directory objects that aren't currently available in the default scope.

Using the IgnoreDefaultScope switch introduces the following restrictions:

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

  • You can only use the DN for the Identity parameter. Other forms of identification, such as alias or GUID, aren't accepted.

ImmutableId

Optional

System.String

The ImmutableId parameter is used by GAL synchronization (GALSync) and specifies a unique and immutable identifier in the form of an SMTP address for an Exchange mailbox used for federated delegation when requesting Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) tokens. If federation is configured for this mailbox and you don't set this parameter when you create the mailbox, Exchange creates the value for the immutable ID based upon the mailbox's ExchangeGUID and the federated account namespace, for example, 7a78e7c8-620e-4d85-99d3-c90d90f29699@mail.contoso.com.

You need to set the ImmutableId parameter if Active Directory Federation Services (AD FS) is deployed to allow single sign-on into an off-premises mailbox and AD FS is configured to use a different attribute than ExchangeGUID for sign-on token requests. Both, Exchange and AD FS must request the same token for the same user to ensure proper functionality for a cross-premises Exchange deployment scenario.

MailTip

Optional

System.String

The MailTip parameter specifies the custom MailTip text for this recipient. The MailTip is shown to senders when they start drafting an email message to this recipient. If the value contains spaces, enclose the value in quotation marks (").

When you add a MailTip to a recipient, two things happen:

  • HTML tags are automatically added to the text. For example, if you enter the text: "This mailbox is not monitored", the MailTip automatically becomes: <html><body>This mailbox is not monitored</body></html>. Additional HTML tags aren't supported, and the length of the MailTip can't exceed 175 displayed characters.

  • The text is automatically added to the MailTipTranslations property of the recipient as the default value: default:<MailTip text>. If you modify the MailTip text, the default value is automatically updated in the MailTipTranslations property, and vice-versa.

MailTipTranslations

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The MailTipTranslations parameter specifies additional languages for the custom MailTip text that's defined by the MailTip parameter. HTML tags are automatically added to the MailTip translation, additional HTML tags aren't supported, and the length of the MailTip translation can't exceed 175 displayed characters.

To add or remove MailTip translations without affecting the default MailTip or other MailTip translations, use the following syntax:

@{Add="<culture 1>:<localized text 1>","<culture 2>:<localized text 2>"...; Remove="<culture 3>:<localized text 3>","<culture 4>:<localized text 4>"...}

<culture> is a valid ISO 639 two-letter culture code that's associated with the language.

For example, suppose this recipient currently has the MailTip text: "This mailbox is not monitored." To add the Spanish translation, use the following value for this parameter: @{Add="ES:Esta caja no se supervisa."}.

ModeratedBy

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The ModeratedBy parameter specifies one or more moderators for this recipient. A moderator approves messages sent to the recipient before the messages are delivered. A moderator must be a mailbox, mail user, or mail contact in your organization. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the moderator.

For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical DN

  • Email address

  • GUID

To enter multiple values and overwrite any existing entries, use the following syntax: <value1>,<value2>.... If the values contain spaces or otherwise require quotation marks, you need to use the following syntax: "<value1>","<value2>"....

To add or remove one or more values without affecting any existing entries, use the following syntax: @{Add="<value1>","<value2>"...; Remove="<value1>","<value2>"...}.

You need to use this parameter to specify at least one moderator when you set the ModerationEnabled parameter to the value $true.

ModerationEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The ModerationEnabled parameter specifies whether moderation is enabled for this recipient. Valid value are:

  • $true   Moderation is enabled for this recipient. Messages sent to this recipient must be approved by a moderator before the messages are delivered.

  • $false   Moderation is disabled for this recipient. Messages sent to this recipient are delivered without the approval of a moderator. This is the default value.

You use the ModeratedBy parameter to specify the moderators.

Name

Optional

System.String

The Name parameter specifies the unique name of the mail user. The maximum length is 64 characters. If the value contains spaces, enclose the value in quotation marks (").

PrimarySmtpAddress

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.SmtpAddress

The PrimarySmtpAddress parameter specifies the primary return email address that's used for the recipient. If it's available on this cmdlet, you can't use the EmailAddresses and PrimarySmtpAddress parameters in the same command.

RecoverableItemsQuota

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Unlimited

The RecoverableItemsQuota parameter specifies the maximum size for the Recoverable Items folder of the mailbox. If the Recoverable Items folder reaches or exceeds this size, it no longer accepts messages.

A valid value is a number up to 1.999999999 terabytes (2199023254528 bytes) or the value unlimited. The default value is 30 gigabytes (32212254720 bytes).

When you enter a number, you can qualify it with one of the following units:

  • B (bytes)

  • KB (kilobytes)

  • MB (megabytes)

  • GB (gigabytes)

  • TB (terabytes)

Unqualified values are typically treated as bytes, but small values may be rounded up to the nearest kilobyte.

The RecoverableItemsQuota value must be greater than or equal to the RecoverableItemsWarningQuota value.

RecoverableItemsWarningQuota

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Unlimited

The RecoverableItemsWarningQuota parameter specifies the warning threshold for the size of the Recoverable Items folder for the mailbox. If the Recoverable Items folder reaches or exceeds this size, Exchange logs an event to the application event log.

A valid value is a number up to 1.999999999 terabytes (2199023254528 bytes) or the value unlimited. The default value is 20 gigabytes (21474836480 bytes).

When you enter a number, you can qualify it with one of the following units:

  • B (bytes)

  • KB (kilobytes)

  • MB (megabytes)

  • GB (gigabytes)

  • TB (terabytes)

Unqualified values are typically treated as bytes, but small values may be rounded up to the nearest kilobyte.

The RecoverableItemsWarningQuota value must be less than or equal to the RecoverableItemsQuota value.

RejectMessagesFrom

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The RejectMessagesFrom parameter specifies who isn't allowed to send messages to this recipient. Messages from these senders are rejected.

Valid values for this parameter are individual senders in your organization (mailboxes, mail users, and mail contacts). You can use any value that uniquely identifies the sender. For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical DN

  • Email address

  • GUID

You can enter multiple senders separated by commas. To overwrite any existing entries, use the following syntax: <sender1>,<senter2>.... If the values contain spaces or otherwise require quotation marks, use the following syntax: "<sender1>","<sender2>"....

To add or remove senders without affecting other existing entries, use the following syntax: @{Add="<sender1>","<sender2>"...; Remove="<sender1>","<sender2>"...}.

The senders you specify for this parameter are automatically copied to the RejectMessagesFromSendersOrMembers property. Therefore, you can't use the RejectMessagesFrom and RejectMessagesFromSendersOrMembers parameters in the same command.

By default, this parameter is blank ($null), which allows this recipient to accept messages from all senders.

RejectMessagesFromDLMembers

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The RejectMessagesFromDLMembers parameter specifies who isn't allowed to send messages to this recipient. Messages from these senders are rejected.

Valid values for this parameter are groups in your organization (distribution groups, mail-enabled security groups, and dynamic distribution groups). Specifying a group means all members of the group aren't allowed to send messages to this recipient. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the group. For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical DN

  • Email address

  • GUID

You can enter multiple groups separated by commas. To overwrite any existing entries, use the following syntax: <group1>,<group2>.... If the values contain spaces or otherwise require quotation marks, use the following syntax: "<group1>","<group2>"....

To add or remove groups without affecting other existing entries, use the following syntax: @{Add="<group1>","<group2>"...; Remove="<group1>","<group2>"...}.

The groups you specify for this parameter are automatically copied to the RejectMessagesFromSendersOrMembers property. Therefore, you can't use the RejectMessagesFromDLMembers and RejectMessagesFromSendersOrMembers parameters in the same command.

By default, this parameter is blank ($null), which allows this recipient to accept messages from all groups.

RejectMessagesFromSendersOrMembers

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.MultiValuedProperty

The RejectMessagesFromSendersOrMembers parameter specifies who isn't allowed to send messages to this recipient. Messages from these senders are rejected.

Valid values for this parameter are individual senders and groups in your organization. Individual senders are mailboxes, mail users, and mail contacts. Groups are distribution groups, mail-enabled security groups, and dynamic distribution groups. Specifying a group means all members of the group aren't allowed to send messages to this recipient.

To specify senders for this parameter, you can use any value that uniquely identifies the sender. For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

You can enter multiple senders separated by commas. To overwrite any existing entries, use the following syntax: <sender1>,<senter2>.... If the values contain spaces or otherwise require quotation marks, use the following syntax: "<sender1>","<sender2>"....

To add or remove individual senders or groups without affecting other existing entries, use the RejectMessagesFrom and RejectMessagesFromDLMembers parameters.

The individual senders and groups you specify for this parameter are automatically copied to the RejectMessagesFrom and RejectMessagesFromDLMembers properties, respectively. Therefore, you can't use the RejectMessagesFromSendersOrMembers parameter and the RejectMessagesFrom or RejectMessagesFromDLMembers parameters in the same command.

By default, this parameter is blank ($null), which allows this recipient to accept messages from all senders.

RemoteRoutingAddress

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.ProxyAddress

The RemoteRoutingAddress parameter specifies the SMTP address of the mailbox in the service that's associated with this mail user.

You shouldn't have to change the remote routing address if the address was automatically configured by Exchange when the mail user and its associated mailbox in the service were created.

RemovePicture

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The RemovePicture switch specifies whether to remove the picture from the mail user. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

You can add a picture to a mail user by using the Import-RecipientDataProperty cmdlet.

RemoveSpokenName

Optional

System.Management.Automation.SwitchParameter

The RemoveSpokenName switch specifies whether to remove the spoken name from the mail user. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

You can add a picture to a mail user by using the Import-RecipientDataProperty cmdlet.

RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled

Optional

System.Boolean

The RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled parameter specifies whether to accept messages only from authenticated (internal) senders. Valid values are:

  • $true   Messages are accepted only from authenticated (internal) senders. Messages from unauthenticated (external) senders are rejected.

  • $false   Messages are accepted from authenticated (internal) and unauthenticated (external) senders.

The default value is $false.

ResetPasswordOnNextLogon

Optional

System.Boolean

The ResetPasswordOnNextLogon parameter specifies whether the user must change their password the next time they log on. Valid values are:

  • $true   The user is required to change their password the next time they log on.

  • $false   The user isn't required to change their password the next time they log on. This is the default value.

SamAccountName

Optional

System.String

The SamAccountName parameter (also known as the pre-Windows 2000 user account or group name) specifies an object identifier that's compatible with older versions of Microsoft Windows client and server operating systems. The value can contain letters, numbers, spaces, periods (.), and the characters !, #, $, %, ^, &, -, _, {, }, and ~. The last character can't be a period. Unicode characters are allowed, but accented characters may generate collisions (for example, o and ö match). The maximum length is 20 characters.

SendModerationNotifications

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.Directory.Recipient.TransportModerationNotificationFlags

The SendModerationNotifications parameter specifies whether moderation status notification messages are sent to senders when they send a message to this moderated recipient. Valid values are:

  • Always   Moderation status notifications are sent to all internal and external senders. This is the default value.

  • Internal   Moderation status notifications are sent to all internal senders, but not to external senders.

  • Never   Moderation status notifications are disabled.

Note that senders are always notified if their message is rejected by a moderator, regardless of the value of this parameter.

The default value is Never.

Type

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Management.RecipientTasks.ConvertibleRemoteMailboxSubType

The Type parameter specifies the type for the mailbox in the service. Valid values are:

  • Regular

  • Room

  • Equipment

UserPrincipalName

Optional

System.String

The UserPrincipalName parameter specifies the logon name for the user account. The UPN uses an email address format <username>@<domain>. Typically, the <domain> value is the domain where the user account resides.

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.

WindowsEmailAddress

Optional

Microsoft.Exchange.Data.SmtpAddress

The WindowsEmailAddress parameter specifies the Windows email address for this recipient. This is a common Active Directory attribute that's present in all environments, including environments without Exchange. Using the WindowsEmailAddress parameter on a recipient has one of the following results:

  • In on-premises environments where the recipient is subject to email address policies (the EmailAddressPolicyEnabled property is set to the value True for the recipient), the WindowsEmailAddress parameter has no effect on the WindowsEmailAddress property or the primary email address value.

  • In cloud environments or in on-premises environments where the recipient isn't subject to email address policies (the EmailAddressPolicyEnabled property is set to the value False for the recipient), the WindowsEmailAddress parameter updates the WindowsEmailAddress property and the primary email address to the same value.

The WindowsEmailAddress property is visible for the recipient in Active Directory Users and Computers in the E-mail attribute. The attribute common name is E-mail-Addresses, and the Ldap-Display-Name is mail. If you modify this attribute in Active Directory, the recipient's primary email address is not updated to the same value.
