Hosting Chat Communities

Ban a User

A user ban allows you to impose restrictions on a specific user.

To ban a user from a chat community:

  1. Start System Manager
    On the Start menu, point to Programs, point to Microsoft Exchange, and then click System Manager.
  2. Navigate to the Bans folder for the chat community where you want to ban a user.

    1. Chat_community_name
    2. Bans
  3. Right-click Bans, click New, and then click Ban.
  4. On the General tab, type the user's Nickname, User name, and Domain name or IP address.

    Note   The chat community protected by the ban is identified by Domain name or IP address.

    Tip   The Nickname, User name, and Domain name or IP address options accept the asterisk (*) and the question mark (?) as wildcard characters, which you can use if you are not sure what to type.

  5. To limit the ban to a particular time of day, in Time active, type a start time and end time. All times are local system time.
  6. If you want to indicate why you are banning the user, in Reason for ban, type the reason.

Tip   To ban a group of users, use Active Directory Users and Computers to create a group for users, add the group to the account, and then ban the group. For more information, see the Windows 2000 Server online documentation.
