Edit Mailbox Quota Warning message RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am looking for information on editing, changing the Exchange 2007 Mailbox Quota message.  I'm not looking to change the quota, but edit the message.

    I have done some playing with the get-systemmessage and set-systemmessage cmdlets but what I would really like to do is edit the html file.

  • This isn't exactly what I'm looking for, but I have been trying to work with the information provided at this link.  I have copied the code on this page, by clicking copy code, and pasted into powershell on each exchange server role, none will run this command.  Here are the results that I get.

    [PS] E:\>Get-SystemMessage -Identity EN\WarningMailbox | Format-List
    Get-SystemMessage : The operation could not be performed because object 'EN\WarningMailbox' could not be found on domain controller 'DC13.int.org'.
    At line:1 char:18
    + Get-SystemMessage <<<<  -Identity EN\WarningMailbox | Format-List
        + CategoryInfo          : InvalidData: (:) [Get-SystemMessage], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
        + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 16145C6A,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Dsn.GetSystemMessage.

    I get the same error when I try the set-systemmessage cmndlet.

  • Did you create a new systemmessage first?

    New-SystemMessage .....

  • Hi The_Messenger,

     

    This command “Get-SystemMessage -Identity EN\WarningMailbox | Format-List” is used to display detailed configuration information of the specific customized quota message for mailbox size warning.If you have not created a customized message this command will not work for you.

     

    If you want to check for the default quota message, you can use this command:

     

    Get-SystemMessage -Original | where {$_.identity -eq "en\WarningMailbox"}

     

    You can use this command to create a custom Quota Warning message:

     

    New-SystemMessage -QuotaMessageType WarningMailbox -Language En -Text "This is a custom quota message."

     

    Then you can use Get-systemMessage and Set-systemMessage to Modify on the custom Quota warning message.


    Here are some related documents for you:

  • Thank you Evan,

    I started to get this from the previous post but yours made this clear.  I missed that that the get-systemmessage command had to be more specific.

     

    Thanks!

  • I'm missing something still.  I'm not able to run the set-systemmessage command.  What am I missing with this command?

      What more information do I need than en\warning mailbox?

     

    Set-SystemMessage EN\WarningMailbox -Text "To assure the integrity of your mailbox items, please reduce your mailbox size. Suggestions: 1.Move email that you want to keep and save indefinitely to the Archive Cabinet. 2. Delete un-needed email left in your Sent Items. 3. Empty your Deleted Items folder. If you require temporary assistance while you perform these steps contact the HNTB Service Desk"

  • You must first create a new custom message.

    New-SystemMessage -Language en -QuotaMessageType WarningMailbox -Text "a custom warning Message"

    you can later change the text if needed with Set-SystemMessage

  • ok, the standard message is that, a standard message and isn't changed.  If I want something different I need to create a new custom message and that can be edited. 

     

    Right - thanks.  Thanks for helping me see the obvious!

    Then I will need to tell the system to use the custom message instead of the standard one.  right?
