Hi, is there any way to edit the 'Your mailbox is becoming too large' message you get in?
I actually want to put in some maintenance tip for users to follow rather than the generic 2 line email you get telling you to delete your deleted items.

Cheers

I seen that article before and thought that was a bit of a useless way for MS to let you do this.

I have quite a lot of info i want to put in and don't really fancy doing it through the commandlet. Is there no other way?

E2k7 is all about cmdlets, if you fancy GUI shift to E2k3 ELSE, try googling for third-party softwares, i am sure some one might have written some un-supported code for E2k7 box.

Well, many people regretted Exchange without many GUI features, but then the amount of control given in shell was never seen before E2k7 ever.

I understand the shell is very powerful, but would rather there was a happy medium.

Off the record, try working with PowerGUI for basic functionality provided with GUI for E2k7+

Being with powershell and exchange since df12 days, I too objected loud and long to the shell.

But, I am converted. The CLI has won me over. If you need to, construct the commands in a text editor and then paste into CLI. Works nicely and provides me with a nice library of commands to go look at later.

here's the CMDLET with HTML formatted text

New-SystemMessage -QuotaMessageType WarningMailbox -Language EN -Text "<p>This is a message from the College of the ?????? email system letting you know that:</p><p><strong>Your mailbox is almost full.</strong></p><p>Please reduce your mailbox size. Delete any items you don't need from your mailbox and empty your Deleted Items folder.</p><p>If you need assistance, please contact the IT helpdesk at 661-555-1212.</p>"

also the CLI is the way to go - if you have ever managed an Exchange environment larger than a few hundred users with 20-50 mailbox databases, the CLI is a MUST

Imaging having to set individual properties thru the GUI for a couple of thousand users

also dealing with public fodler replicas without the CLI would be a management nightmare
