Configuring Exchange Mailboxes

To configure a proxy address via EMS: (Add an SMTP Address)


$Temp = Get-Mailbox –Identity "Brian Perry"

$Temp.EmailAddresses += ("")

Set-Mailbox –Identity "Brian Perry" –EmailAddresses $Temp.EmailAddresses


Enabling/Disabling Client Access Protocols


Set-CASMailbox "Don Hall" –POPEnabled $false –ImapEnabled $false –OWAEnabled $false

–DeliverToMailboxAndForward $true

  1. Full Back up of the Exchange Server
  2. Install IIS WMI Compatibility component
  3. Install on one exchange server at a time.
  4. Run the install file

(This can be done from any domain member machine, but it's best practice to do this locally on the DC)
