Optional Parameters

-BlockListEnabled

The BlockListEnabled parameter specifies whether the Recipient Filter agent blocks messages sent to recipients listed in the BlockedRecipients parameter. Valid input for the BlockListEnabled parameter is $true or $false. The default setting is $false. When the BlockListEnabled parameter is set to $true, the Recipient Filter agent blocks messages sent to recipients listed in the BlockedRecipients parameter.

Type:$true | $false
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-BlockedRecipients

The BlockedRecipients parameter specifies one or more SMTP addresses. To enter multiple SMTP addresses, separate the addresses by using a comma. The maximum number of individual SMTP addresses that you can input is 800.

Type:MultiValuedProperty
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016
-Confirm

The Confirm switch specifies whether to show or hide the confirmation prompt. How this switch affects the cmdlet depends on if the cmdlet requires confirmation before proceeding.

  • Destructive cmdlets (for example, Remove-* cmdlets) have a built-in pause that forces you to acknowledge the command before proceeding. For these cmdlets, you can skip the confirmation prompt by using this exact syntax: -Confirm:$false.

  • Most other cmdlets (for example, New-* and Set-* cmdlets) don't have a built-in pause. For these cmdlets, specifying the Confirm switch without a value introduces a pause that forces you acknowledge the command before proceeding.

-DomainController

The DomainController parameter specifies the domain controller that's used by this cmdlet to read data from or write data to Active Directory. You identify the domain controller by its fully qualified domain name (FQDN). For example, dc01.contoso.com.

The DomainController parameter isn't supported on Edge Transport servers. An Edge Transport server uses the local instance of Active Directory Lightweight Directory Services (AD LDS) to read and write data.

The Enabled parameter specifies whether the Recipient Filter agent is enabled on the computer on which you're running the command. Valid input for the Enabled parameter is $true or $false. The default setting is $true. When the Enabled parameter is set to $true, the Recipient Filter agent is enabled on the computer on which you're running the command.
