Use the Get-IPBlockListProvider cmdlet to view the configuration for a specific IP Block list provider on a computer that has the Hub Transport server role or Edge Transport server role installed.


Get-IPBlockListProvider [-Identity <IPBlockListProviderIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>]

Detailed Description

The IP Block list provider configuration is used by the Connection Filter agent. The Connection Filter agent acts on the IP address of the remote server that initiates the SMTP connection to determine what action, if any, to take on an incoming message.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Anti-spam features" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory. The DomainController parameter isn't supported on the Edge Transport server role. The Edge Transport server role reads only from the Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) instance.




The Identity parameter specifies the IP Block list provider. This parameter can be assigned a string value, which is the ProviderName value, or a GUID.
