Need a Powershell Command to set recipient limits. I have a single forest multi domain environment. Exchange is in root domain and serves all in child domains.
I need to set recipient limits for users in an OU in child domain to, say 5.
Note that Exchange is in the root.
I tried get-user -org "ouname" ¦ get-mailbox, but doesn't work.

    "I need to set recipient limits for users in an OU in child domain to, say 5."

    I may be able to check out some command let for you - but which limit are you talking about

    1. To set a limit in an OU so you cannot create more users OR
    2. To view those mailboxes in EMC console for mailboxes OR
    3. some thing else.
    Sorry, i just wanted to have a more clear picture.
