Description

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).

Examples

-------------------------- Example 1 --------------------------

Set-MessageClassification MyMessageClassification -DisplayPrecedence Low -RetainClassificationEnabled $false

This example makes the following configuration changes to the message classification named MyMessageClassification:

Changes the display precedence to Low.

Specifies that the message classification shouldn't persist with the message if the message is forwarded or replied to.

Required Parameters

-Identity

The Identity parameter specifies the name or GUID of the message classification you want to modify.

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

Optional Parameters

-ClassificationID

The ClassificationID parameter specifies the GUID of an existing message classification that you want to use in your Exchange organization. Use this parameter if you're configuring message classifications to span two Exchange forests in the same organization.

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

The DisplayName parameter specifies the display name for the message classification instance. The display name appears in the Microsoft Office and is used by Outlook users to select the appropriate message classification before they send a message.

When you specify a name that includes spaces, you must enclose the name in quotation marks ("), for example, "Display Name". The DisplayName parameter can contain a maximum of 64 characters.

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

The DisplayPrecedence parameter specifies the relative precedence of the message classification to other message classifications that may be applied to a specified message. Although Outlook only lets a user specify a single classification for each message, transport rules may apply other classifications to a message. The classification with the highest precedence is shown first, and the subsequent classifications, which are those with lesser precedence as defined by this parameter, are appended in the appropriate order thereafter.

Valid input for the DisplayPrecedence parameter is Highest, Higher, High, MediumHigh, Medium, MediumLow, Low, Lower, and Lowest.

The default value is Medium.

Type:Highest | Higher | High | MediumHigh | Medium | MediumLow | Low | Lower | Lowest
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-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.

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.

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
-Name

The Name parameter specifies the administrative name for the message classification instance. The name is used to administer the message classification instance. When you specify a name that includes spaces, you must enclose the name in quotation marks ("), for example, "Administrative Name". The Name parameter can contain a maximum of 256 characters.

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

The PermissionMenuVisible parameter specifies whether the values that you entered for the DisplayName and RecipientDescription parameters are displayed in Outlook as the user composes a message.

If you set the PermissionMenuVisible parameter to $false, users won't be able to assign this message classification to the messages they're composing. However, messages received with this message classification still display the classification information.

The default value is $true.

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, Exchange Online
-RecipientDescription

The RecipientDescription parameter specifies the purpose of the message classification to the recipient. The value of this parameter is shown to Outlook users when they receive a message that has this message classification. Enclose the value in quotation marks ("), for example, "This is the recipient description that explains how to treat the message that has been classified". The RecipientDescription parameter can contain a maximum of 1,024 characters.

If you don't enter a value for this parameter, the description that you enter for SenderDescription is used.

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

The RetainClassificationEnabled parameter specifies whether the message classification should persist with the message if the message is forwarded or replied to.

The default value is $true.

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, Exchange Online
-SenderDescription

The SenderDescription parameter specifies the purpose of the message classification to the sender. The value of this parameter is used by Outlook users to select the appropriate message classification before they send a message. Enclose the value in quotation marks ("), for example, "This is the sender description that explains when to use this message classification". The SenderDescription parameter can contain a maximum of 1,024 characters.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
-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
Aliases:wi
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Server 2010, Exchange Server 2013, Exchange Server 2016, Exchange Online
