Microsoft Online Services: 4 new powershell cmdlets

Written by Stacia Snapp, Microsoft User Experience Writer.

Four new Microsoft PowerShell cmdlets are now available for you to use with Microsoft Online Services. The first two cmdlets below let you manage alternate recipient settings for a user’s mailbox. The last cmdlets help you enable or disable POP access for a specific user’s mailbox.

1. Clear-MSOnlineAlternateRecipient: By using this cmdlet, you can remove all alternate recipient settings for a user’s mailbox in Microsoft Online Services. Clearing these settings will stop incoming messages from being forwarded to a designated alternate e-mail address and will restore delivery to the original recipient’s mailbox.

Get the Clear-MSOnlineAlternateRecipientcmdlt here.

2. Set-MSOnlineAlternateRecipient: Use the Set-MSOnlineAlternateRecipient cmdlet to set an alternate recipient for a user’s mailbox in Microsoft Online Services. The cmdlet supports the following delivery scenarios for incoming e-mail messages:

  • Messages are delivered to the recipient’s mailbox and forwarded to an alternate e-mail address.
  • Messages are forwarded to an alternate e-mail address without delivery to the intended recipient’s mailbox.

Get the Set-MSOnlineAlternateRecipientcmdlt here.

3. Disable-MSOnlinePOPAccess: Use this cmdlet to disable POP3 access for a specific user’s mailbox in Microsoft Online Services.

Get the Disable-MSOnlinePOPAccesscmdlt here.

4. Enable-MSOnlinePOPAccess: Use this cmdlet to enable POP3 access for a specific user’s mailbox in Microsoft Online Services.

Get the Enable-MSOnlinePOPAccesscmdlt here.
