Exchange 2013 notes

Configure a forwarding address in Exchange shell:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-Mailbox "User_Name" | fl ForwardingSMTPAddress,DeliverToMailboxandForward

ForwardingSmtpAddress      : smtp:user@example.com
DeliverToMailboxAndForward : True
DeliverToMailboxandForward

specifies that email is delivered both to the users’ mailbox and the SMTP address.
You need to create a contact to use the SMTP address.

Oddly enough – when I set this – the

ForwardingSmtpAddress

showed the forwarding address.
But going back to it some days later, the forwarding address was no longer shown – however it is shown in the ‘GUI’.
I am finding many inconsistencies like this with Exchange 2013.

Hide a mailbox from the address book (despite checking it in the ‘gui’ it doesn’t work).

Set-Mailbox -Identity "User Name" -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true

Setup a moderated public folder, with more than one moderator (you can’t add groups).

Set-MailPublicFolder "IT-Helpdesk" -ModerationEnabled $True -ModeratedBy "User One, User Two, User Three"

Update the address book:

Get-AddressList | update-AddressList

Update the Offline Address Book:

Get-OfflineAddressBook | Update-OfflineAddressBook
