Managed folder mailbox policies are used to create logical groupings of managed folders. When a managed folder mailbox policy is applied to users' mailboxes, all the managed folders linked to the policy are deployed in a single operation. You can apply only one managed folder mailbox policy to a user mailbox.

Managed custom folders are a premium feature of messaging records management (MRM). Mailboxes with policies that include managed custom folders require an Exchange Server Enterprise client access license (CAL).

Use the Shell to apply a managed folder mailbox policy to a user's mailbox

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "Messaging records management" entry in the Messaging Policy and Compliance Permissions topic.

In Exchange 2010 SP1, you can't use the Exchange Management Console (EMC) to apply a managed folder mailbox policy to a mailbox.

This example applies the mailbox policy Corp-VPs Managed Folder Mailbox Policy to user Chris' mailbox.

Copy Code
Set-Mailbox -Identity Chris -ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy "Corp-VPs Managed Folder Mailbox Policy"

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Set-Mailbox.
