Tip of the day: Where are the delivery restriction settings for resource mailboxes ?


If you moved from exchange 2010 to 2013 SP1 you will notice that you are no more able to see the message delivery restriction settings in ECP for resource mailboxes, they are gone Sad smile

But hold on, the feature is not removed, it’s just the ECP no more showing the options.

You still can manage the message delivery restriction using exchange shell.

 

Set-Mailbox can do the job with the parameters “–AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom”, “-AcceptMessagesOnlyFromDLMembers”, “-RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled”, “-RejectMessagesFrom “,“-RejectMessagesFromDLMembers”,

 

This example configures the mailbox of Azure Meeting Room to accept messages only from the users Lori Penor, Jeff Phillips, and members of the distribution group Legal Team 1.

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Azure Meeting Room" -AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom "Lori Penor","Jeff Phillips" -AcceptMessagesOnlyFromDLMembers "Legal Team 1"

 

This example adds the user named David Pelton to the list of users whose messages will be accepted by the resource mailbox.

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Azure Meeting Room" -AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom @{add="David Pelton"}

 

This example configures the resource mailbox to require all senders to be authenticated. This means the mailbox will only accept messages sent by other users in your Exchange organization.

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Azure Meeting Room" -RequireSenderAuthenticationEnabled $true

 

This example configures the resource mailbox to reject messages from the users Joe Healy, Terry Adams, and members of the distribution group Legal Team 2.

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Azure Meeting Room" -RejectMessagesFrom "Joe Healy","Terry Adams" -RejectMessagesFromDLMembers "Legal Team 2"

 

This example configures the resource mailbox reject messages sent by members of the group Legal Team 3.

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Azure Meeting Room" -RejectMessagesFromDLMembers @{add="Legal Team 3"}

 

Enjoy Smile
