You can use the Shell to remove a custom delivery status notification (DSN) message on a computer running Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 that has the Hub Transport server role or the Edge Transport server role installed.

Looking for other management tasks related to DSNs? Check out Managing Delivery Status Notifications.


Before you perform this procedure, you must specify the identity of the DSN message or messages that you want to view. For more information about how to specify the identity of a DSN message, see DSN Message Identity.

Use the Shell to remove an existing DSN message

You need to be assigned permissions before you can perform this procedure. To see what permissions you need, see the "DSNs" entry in the Transport Permissions topic.

You can't use the EMC to remove an existing DSN message.

When you remove a customiz DSN message, the DSN code associated with that message reverts to the original DSN message included with Exchange 2010.

You can't remove an original DSN message included with Exchange 2010. To change an original DSN message, you must create a customiz DSN message for the DSN code that you want to customize.

This example removes the customiz 5.1.2 DSN for the English locale configured to be sent to Internal senders.

Copy Code
Remove-SystemMessage En\Internal\5.1.2
