Hi,
first I 'd like to find a script to remove mail user in mail contact in exchange management shell.

And I have script to enable a user mailbox.
Enable-MailUser -Identity 'AD.LOCAL/MIS/test' -Alias 'test' -ExternalEmailAddress 'SMTP:test@mail.com'
I'd like to put them together and run in exchange management shell.
My questions is when I run test.ps1 it showed me a error message, "The term 'enable_mail_yantest.psl' is not recognized as a cmdlet, function, operable program, or script file. Verify the term and try again."

Please help,
Thanks,

Try this...this works for me:

Remove-MailContact aliasofcontact
Enable-MailUser test -Alias test -ExternalEmailAddress SMTP:test@mydomain.com

This only makes contacts...are you looking to have the test user account to have a mailbox on the exchange database?

when I run
Remove-MailContact aliasofcontact
it said
Object could not be found on domain controller.
So I tried command,
REmove-mailuser test

it is successful with some option 'y' 'a', n'',...

but when I run,
Enable-MailUser test -Alias test -ExternalEmailAddress SMTP:test@mydomain.com
it said,
object /ad/mis/test' could not be found on domaincontroller
I thought remove-mailuser removed user account as well, right?

Can I run them in batch file and silently?

Remove-Mailuser aliasofcontact
Enable-MailUser test -Alias test -ExternalEmailAddress SMTP:test@mydomain.com

Thanks,
