I'm trying to script mailbox moves in exchange 2007, however, for some reason, I cannot get the confirmation assocaited with the move mailbox to suppress.

I've tried the following:
Get-journalRule | Disable-JournalRule -confirm:$false, yet the confirmation persists.

The message i'm refereing to is:

cmdlet move-mailbox at command pipeline position 1
Supply values for the following parameters:
TargetDatabase: test1db

Are you sure you want to perform this action?
Moving mailbox: Random Person (RandomPerson@test.net) to database:
TEST\test1\test1db. The operation can take a long time and the mailbox will
be inaccessible until the move is completed.

(default is "Y"):

Is there any way to suppress this prompt so i can use the move-mailbox cmdlet in a script to move a large number of mailboxes?
