Exchange 2007 - Setting Languages mailbox parameter using cmdlets

Last Modified: 2012-06-22
Good day,

I sat the whole of yesterday figuring out how to make Out of Office messages in Exchange 2007 appear in English.

Basically what I have done is using cmdlets in the Exchange Management Shell.

Set-Mailbox -Identity "Full Name" -Languages "en-GB"

Restart the Exchange information store service and it is working 100%.

I reported back to the customer that I have a solution and that I would require a list of affected users in vsv format.

I have just received the list and we have over 200 users on the list.

I do not feel like changing every singe user manually. Is it possible to use a script to pull the details out of a csv file?

Alternatively, can a script be done to change all users on the server to "en-GB"

I would prefer the first option.

Would it be possible for someone to give me an example of how this script would look?

I know it is asking a lot, but if the script could also be commented as I would really like to learn how the cmdlets scripting works. I do not just want get a script and copy and paste it.

This would truely be appreciated.

Thank you,
