Use the Exchange Management Shell to alter the user mailbox properties

 

Use the Get-Mailbox and Set-Mailbox cmdlets to access and alter properties for user mailboxes. One benefit of using the Exchange Management Shell is the capability to change the properties for multiple mailboxes.

 

Here are few examples using the Exchange Management Shell to alter user mailbox properties.

 

This example depicts how to forward Pat Coleman’s email messages to Sunil Koduri’s ([email protected]) mailbox.

 

Set-Mailbox -Identity patc -DeliverToMailboxAndForward $true -ForwardingAddress [email protected]

 

This example uses the Get-Mailbox command to explore all user mailboxes in the enterprise, and then uses the Set-Mailbox command to fix or set the recipient limit to 500 recipients permitted in the To:, Cc:, and Bcc: boxes of an email message.

 

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited -Filter {(RecipientTypeDetails -eq ‘UserMailbox’)} | Set-Mailbox -RecipientLimits 500
 

This example uses the Get-Mailbox command to locate all the mailboxes in the Marketing organizational unit, and after that uses the Set-Mailbox command to configure these mailboxes. The custom warning, prohibit send, and prohibit send and receive limits are set to 200 megabytes (MB), 250 MB, and 280 MB respectively, and also the mailbox database’s default limits are ignored. Such command might be used to configure a particular set of mailboxes to have larger or smaller limits than other mailboxes present over the organization.

 

Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit “Marketing” | Set-Mailbox -IssueWarningQuota 209715200 -ProhibitSendQuota 262144000 -ProhibitSendReceiveQuota 293601280 -UseDatabaseQuotaDefaults $false
 

This instance utilizes the Get-Mailbox cmdlet to explore all users in the Customer Service department, and then utilizes the Set-Mailbox cmdlet to alter the maximum message size for sending messages to 2 MB.

 

Get-Mailbox -Filter “Department -eq ‘Customer Service'” | Set-Mailbox -MaxSendSize 2097152

In the given example above where the recipient limit was altered, run the following command to examine the new value.
  •  

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited -Filter {(RecipientTypeDetails -eq ‘UserMailbox’)} | fl Name,RecipientLimits
 

For the instance above where the message limits were altered, run this command.
 

Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit “Marketing” | fl Name,IssueWarningQuota,ProhibitSendQuota,ProhibitSendReceiveQuota,UseDatabaseQuotaDefa
