    What kind of policy do you mean, can you elaborate a little further as to what you wish to accomplish?

    Do you have a separate database for student users? If so run this command in powershell:

    Get-Mailbox -database "Servername\Storage Group\database" | set-mailbox -recipientlimits 1

    can the script run looking at the database like "C:\data\" or does it have to run it like "//servername/"?

    In my case the command is

    Get-Mailbox –Database “dstc-ex-001\Students Database” | set-mailbox -recipientlimits 1

    You have to run the command in powershell, just paste that into powershell and edit the servername\database name and press enter

    -- Only going to be okay though if you HAVE seperate databases for students.

    If you have everyone in the same database, then it's going to need a more "filtered" command.

    Hi,

    all of the data is stored into different databases.

    If we run the command in powerhell like: \\server\database will it find it?

    My command would look similar to this:
    Get-Mailbox -database "F:\ExchangeSrv1\Storage Group\Staff.[extension]" | set-mailbox -recipientlimits 1

    would my command work??

    Thanks

    I've always found ADModify good for this sort of stuff:

    Exchange 2007/10 does not integrate itself into AD like 2000/03 did and therefore that would not work the same.

    The command in which you said i do not understand the staff.[EXTENSION] bit, are you saying that all your student/staff mailboxes are in the same database?

    Yeah, sorry i hate correcting people as i am just as bad at times.. but it's all good never know might help out someone who still uses 2003 etc

    I hate having to use the Exchange Managment Console all the time anyway! hence i have it installed on my PC now save keep going into an RDP Session.

    Hi

    All the Databases are Split [Staff | Student | Admin].

    The Staff.[extension] is just me forgetting the extension of the DB

    Thanks

    Oh okay in which case all you need is

    Get-Mailbox -database "\\ExchangeSrv1\Storage Group\Student" | set-mailbox -recipientlimits 1

    *dont think you need the extention to be honest
