Use the New UM Mailbox Policy Wizard to create a new Unified Messaging (UM) mailbox policy. UM mailbox policies link a UM-enabled user with a UM dial plan and apply a common set of policies or security settings to a collection of UM-enabled mailboxes. UM mailbox policies are useful for applying and standardizing UM configuration settings for UM-enabled users.

By default, when a UM dial plan is created, a UM mailbox policy is also be created. However, there are other times that you may have to create additional UM mailbox policies or modify existing UM mailbox policies after you deploy Unified Messaging in your Exchange Server 2007 organization.

After you create a new UM mailbox policy, you associate UM-enabled users to the UM mailbox policy that you created.

Mailbox policy name
  • Use this text box to specify a unique name for the UM mailbox policy. This is a display name that appears in the Exchange Management Console.

  • If you must change the display name of the UM mailbox policy after it has been created, you must first delete the existing UM mailbox policy, and then create another UM mailbox policy that has the appropriate name. To delete the UM mailbox policy, there must not be any UM-enabled users who are associated with the UM mailbox policy.

  • The UM mailbox policy name is required, but it is used for display purposes only. Because your organization may use multiple UM mailbox policies, we recommend that you use meaningful names for your UM mailbox policies.

  • The maximum length of a UM mailbox policy name is 64 characters, and it can include spaces. However, it cannot include any of the following characters: " / \ [ ] : ; | = , + * ? < >.

Select associated dial plan

Click Browse to select the UM dial plan that will be associated with the UM mailbox policy. You must associate a UM mailbox policy with at least one UM dial plan. A single UM mailbox policy must be associated with at least one UM dial plan. However, you can also associate multiple UM mailbox policies with a single dial plan.
