This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Console and the Exchange Management Shell to delete or remove a Unified Messaging (UM) mailbox policy. When you delete a UM mailbox policy, the UM mailbox policy will no longer be available to be associated to Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 recipients who are newly enabled for Unified Messaging.

The UM mailbox policy cannot be deleted if it is referenced by any UM-enabled mailboxes.

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 the following:

  • A UM dial plan has been created.

  • A UM mailbox policy has been created.


To use the Exchange Management Console to delete a UM mailbox policy

  1. In the console tree of the Exchange Management Console, expand the Organizational Configuration node, and then click the Unified Messaging node.

  2. In the work pane, click the UM Mailbox Policies tab.

  3. In the work pane, click to highlight the UM mailbox policy that you want to delete.

  4. In the action pane, click Remove.

  5. In the confirmation dialog box, click Yes.

To use the Exchange Management Shell to delete a UM mailbox policy

  • Run the following command:

    Copy Code
    Remove-UMMailboxPolicy -MyUMMailboxPolicy
