The Exchange 2007 Management Shell

The Exchange Management Console gives you a quick and easy way of working with your Exchange 2007 server, but it’s the Management Shell that unleashes the full potential of Exchange 2007.

It’s in here you’ll work with PowerShell scripts and cmdlets that manage every aspect of how Exchange works – from configuring user mailboxes to managing anti-spam filter whitelists. There are even Exchange cmdlets that help manage messaging compliance – useful if you have a customer who accepts credit card statements and needs to comply with PCI-DSS, the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards.

Exchange 2007 comes with its own library of PowerShell cmdlets. Use them in custom management scripts, or just use them as is to quickly make changes to servers without opening a resource intensive GUI control panel.

You can download a categorised quick reference for the Exchange Management Shell from: www.microsoft.com/downloads/d.... As the guide’s a standalone HTML file it’s an ideal addition to your knowledge base; add it to the useful documents and utilities you keep on your USB flash drive.

One useful PowerShell tip.
Any cmdlet’s output can be piped to the clipboard and then pasted to another application – this is a useful way of capturing and documenting Exchange 2007 settings. Just add the following to any cmdlet you’ve been using: |clip !
