This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell to create a new Unified Messaging (UM) mailbox policy. You can create a UM mailbox policy to apply a common set of UM policy settings, such as PIN policy settings or dialing restrictions, to a collection of UM-enabled mailboxes. After you have created a new UM mailbox policy and linked the UM mailbox policy to a UM dial plan, the UM mailbox policy settings can be applied to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 users who are enabled for Unified Messaging.

UM mailbox policy settings will apply only to UM-enabled users of the UM dial plan with which the UM mailbox policy is associated.
Each time that you create a UM dial plan, a UM mailbox policy will also be created. The UM mailbox policy will be named <DialPlanName> Default Policy.

Before You Begin

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the Exchange Organization Administrator role.

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.

Also, before you perform these procedures, confirm that a valid UM dial plan has been created.
