Get-SPMobileMessagingAccount [[-Identity] <SPMobileMessagingAccountPipeBind>] -WebApplication <SPWebApplicationPipeBind> [-AssignmentCollection <SPAssignmentCollection>]

The Get-SPMobileMessagingAccount cmdlet retrieves the specified mobile messaging accounts for the specified Web application.


Parameter Required Type Description




Specifies whether to return either Short Message Service (SMS) or Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS) account information. Valid values are:SMS and MMS. If you do not specify this parameter, account information is returned for both SMS and MMS.




Specifies the identity of the Web application to delete. The type must be a valid GUID, in the form 12345678-90ab-cdef-1234-567890bcdefgh; a valid Web application name (for example, WebApplication1212); or a valid name (for example, WebApp2423).

You either must specify WebApplication or must use the HostHeader switch and specify the full URL in the Identity parameter.




Manages objects for the purpose of proper disposal. Use of objects, such as SPWeb or SPSite, can use large amounts of memory and use of these objects in Windows PowerShell scripts requires proper memory management. Using the SPAssignment object, you can assign objects to a variable and dispose of the objects after they are needed to free up memory. When SPWeb, SPSite, or SPSiteAdministration objects are used, the objects are automatically disposed of if an assignment collection or the Global parameter is not used.

When the Global parameter is used, all objects are contained in the global store. If objects are not immediately used, or disposed of by using the Stop-SPAssignment command, an out-of-memory scenario can occur.
