  • What happens when you try that method? What errors do you get? Have you ensured you've installed EWS 1.2 per the requirements listed in the script? (it actually mentions 1.1, but that no longer seems to be available, but 1.2 is here http://www.microsoft.com/en-gb/download/details.aspx?id=28952 ).

    I'm assuming you're running Exchange 2007 (since you're posting in the 2003/2007 forum, and this won't work on 2003), is that correct?

    While I don't know for sure that the script will work on 2007, have you ensured that you've amended the file paths to the correct locations? Eg, assuming it should work you'll need to amend the line :

    $service = New-Object Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeService([Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.Data.ExchangeVersion]::Exchange2010_SP1)

    to reflect the version of Exchange you're running, and the line :

    Import-Module -Name "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange\Web Services\1.1\Microsoft.Exchange.WebServices.dll"
    with whatever version of EWS you've installed.

  • Hi,

    Great checklist from Langmead.

    I want to double confirm the Exchange server version. If you are using Exchange server 2010, I find a related script for your reference:
    Create a Custom root Folder in all the Mailboxes (Bulk) in Exchange 2010
