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.

Examples

Example 1

Set-HostedOutboundSpamFilterRule -Identity "Contoso Executives" -ExceptIfFrom "Elizabeth Brunner"

This example adds an exception to the existing rule named Contoso Executives.

Parameters

-Comments

The Comments parameter specifies informative comments for the rule, such as what the rule is used for or how it has changed over time. The length of the comment can't exceed 1024 characters.

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False
Accept wildcard characters:False
Applies to:Exchange Online, Exchange Online Protection
-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.

-HostedOutboundSpamFilterPolicy

The HostedOutboundSpamFilterPolicy parameter specifies the outbound spam filter policy that's associated with the outbound spam filter rule.

You can use any value that uniquely identifies the policy. For example:

  • Name
  • Distinguished name (DN)
  • GUID.

You can't specify the default outbound spam filter policy, and you can't specify an outbound spam filter policy that's already associated with another outbound spam filter rule.

-Name

The Name parameter specifies a unique name for the outbound spam filter rule. The maximum length is 64 characters. If the value contains spaces, enclose the value in quotation marks (").

Type:String
Position:Named
Default value:None
Accept pipeline input:False

-Priority

The Priority parameter specifies a priority value for the rule that determines the order of rule processing. A lower integer value indicates a higher priority, the value 0 is the highest priority, and rules can't have the same priority value.

Valid values and the default value for this parameter depend on the number of existing rules. For example, if there are 8 existing rules:

  • Valid priority values for the existing 8 rules are from 0 through 7.
  • Valid priority values for a new rule (the 9th rule) are from 0 through 8.
  • The default value for a new rule (the 9th rule) is 8.

If you modify the priority value of a rule, the position of the rule in the list changes to match the priority value you specify. In other words, if you set the priority value of a rule to the same value as an existing rule, the priority value of the existing rule and all other lower priority rules after it is increased by 1.

Type:Int32

The SenderDomainIs parameter specifies a condition that looks for senders with email address in the specified domains. You can specify multiple domains separated by commas.

Type:Word[]
Position:Named
