Description

Mailboxes are quarantined when they affect the availability of the mailbox database. Typically a software fix from Microsoft is required before releasing a mailbox from quarantine. If a fix isn't deployed before releasing the mailbox, the quarantine on the mailbox will be re-enabled if the condition recurs. The default quarantine duration is 24 hours.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although this topic lists all parameters for the cmdlet, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To find the permissions required to run any cmdlet or parameter in your organization, see Find the permissions required to run any Exchange cmdlet (https://technet.microsoft.com/library/mt432940.aspx).

Required Parameters

-Database

The Database parameter specifies the database that contains the mailboxes you want to release from quarantine. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the database. For example:

  • Name

  • Distinguished name (DN)

  • GUID

You identify the mailboxes by using the IncludeAllMailboxes switch or the StoreMailboxIdentity parameter.

You can't use this parameter with the Identity or Server parameters.

Type:DatabaseIdParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2016
-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the mailbox that you want to release from quarantine. 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)

You can't use this parameter with the Database or Server parameters.

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

The IncludeAllDatabases switch specifies that you want to release all quarantined mailboxes in all databases on the server you specify with the Server parameter. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

You can only use this switch with the Identity or Database parameters.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2016
-IncludeAllMailboxes

The IncludeAllMailboxes switch specifies that you want to release all mailboxes from quarantine in the database you specify with the Database parameter. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

You can't use this switch with the StoreMailboxIdentity parameter.

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

The Server parameter specifies the server that contains the mailboxes that you want to release from quarantine by using the IncludeAllDatabases switch. You can use any value that uniquely identifies the server. For example:

  • Name

  • FQDN

  • Distinguished Name (DN)

  • Exchange Legacy DN

You can't use this parameter with the Identity or Database parameters.

Type:ServerIdParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2016
-StoreMailboxIdentity

The StoreMailboxIdentity parameter specifies the mailbox that you want to release from quarantine when you use the Database parameter.

You identify the mailbox by its GUID value. You can find the GUID value by using the Get-Mailbox or Get-MailboxStatistics cmdlets.

You can't use this switch with the IncludeAllMailboxes switch.

Type:StoreMailboxIdParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2016

Optional Parameters

-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.

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

The IncludePassive switch specifies that you also want to release inactive copies of the mailbox from quarantine. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

Type:SwitchParameter
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2016
-WhatIf

The WhatIf switch simulates the actions of the command. You can use this switch to view the changes that would occur without actually applying those changes. You don't need to specify a value with this switch.

Type:SwitchParameter

Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
