Turning off Junk Folder - cmdlet produces error

I am attempting to globally turn off the Junk Email Folder using this cmdlet (run as the Admin)..
Get-Mailbox -Database Mailboxes | Set-MailboxJunkEmailConfiguration -Enabled $false
I receive the error:
The Junk E-Mail configuration couldn't be set. The user needs to sign in to Outlook Web App before they can modify their Safe Senders and Recipients or Blocked Senders lists.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (2:Int32) [Set-MailboxJunkEmailConfiguration], DataSourceOperationException

I did login to Outlook Web App which made no difference.

The cmdlet for specific mailboxes works fine.
Set-MailboxJunkEmailConfiguration -Identity username -Enabled $false

I seem to recall this error when a mailbox exists that has NEVER been connected to? do you have any of these maybe?

It turns out, despite the errors, this cmdlet does actually disable the junk mail settings on all the user's mailboxes. I suspect you're right in saying the errors are related to mailboxes never initialized (system mailboxes,etc) so you get the points for pointing that out. Thanks.
