Open Exchange Management GUI

look at your MAILBOX STORES the name of the mailbox store is the name of your database
By default, name given to database under First Storage Group is Mailbox Database.edb & for Public Folder is Public Folder Database.edb.

Managing email signatures in Office 365 can be a challenging task if you don't have the right tool. CodeTwo Email Signatures for Office 365 will help you implement a unified email signature look, no matter what email client is used by users. Test it for free!

If you run get-mailboxdatabase on its own, all of the mailbox databases in your Exchange Org will be listed.

If the application requires the permission on all databases then just run get-mailboxdatabase on its own, without the database name command.


I have slightly diffrent problem:

my mailbox database name is: Mailbox Database

when I try run comand to remove disconected mailbox I get error:

Remove-Mailbox : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'datab
At line:1 char:15

is it because the name has 2 words? how can I possibly find GUID of Mailbox Database? maybe that way it would work?

many thanks
