Required Parameters

-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the mailbox that you want to view. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the mailbox.

For example:

  • Name

  • Display name

  • Alias

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • Canonical DN

  • <domain name>\<account name>

  • Email address

  • GUID

  • LegacyExchangeDN

  • SamAccountName

  • User ID or user principal name (UPN)

Type:MailboxIdParameter
Position:1
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:True
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016

Optional Parameters

-DomainController

This parameter is available only in on-premises Exchange.

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.

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

The VerifyDefaultFolderNameLanguage switch verifies that the default folder names are localized in the language that's specified for the mailbox (the Language property value). You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

The results are displayed in the DefaultFolderNameMatchingUserLanguage property. To see this property, you need to pipeline the results of the command to the Format-List or Format-Table cmdlets. For example:

  • Get-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -Identity <MailboxIdentity> -VerifyDefaultFolderNameLanguage | Format-List

Or

  • Get-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -Identity <MailboxIdentity> -VerifyDefaultFolderNameLanguage | Format-Table Language,DefaultFolderNameMatchingUserLanguage

If you view the DefaultFolderNameMatchingUserLanguage property without using the VerifyDefaultFolderNameLanguage switch, the value is always $false, even if the default folder names are localized in the language that's specified for the mailbox.

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