For information about the parameter sets in the Syntax section below, see Syntax.


Remove-SiteMailboxProvisioningPolicy -Identity <MailboxPolicyIdParameter> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]



This example deletes the site mailbox policy that was created when you installed Microsoft Exchange.

You must first create and designate a default policy before you can remove the policy named Default.
Copy Code
Remove-SiteMailboxProvisioningPolicy -Identity Default

Detailed Description

You can't delete the default site mailbox provisioning policy. You need to create a default policy by using the New-SiteMailboxProvisioningPolicy cmdlet or assign another provisioning policy as the default by using the Set-SiteMailboxProvisioningPolicy cmdlet.

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 "Site mailbox provisioning policy" entry in the Sharing and Collaboration Permissions topic.


Parameter Required Type Description




The Identity parameter specifies the identity of the site mailbox provisioning policy that you want to delete.




The Confirm switch causes the command to pause processing and requires you to acknowledge what the command will do before processing continues. You don't have to specify a value with the Confirm switch.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that writes this configuration change to Active Directory.




The WhatIf switch instructs the command to simulate the actions that it would take on the object. By using the WhatIf switch, you can view what changes would occur without having to apply any of those changes. You don't have to specify a value with the WhatIf switch.
