Is there a way to copy inbox rules from one mailbox to another using powershell?
I tried piping output from Get-InboxRule to New-InboxRule but it didn't work.

get-inboxrule new-inboxrule should work however it will be very tedious unless you have an idea about what you want

I'm just trying:
Get-InboxRule -Mailbox some_mailbox -Identity rule_id  | New-InboxRule -Mailbox other_mailbox -Name "Test"

Open in new window

And the result is:

The input object cannot be bound to any parameters for the command either because the command does not take pipeline input or the input and its properties do not match any of the parameters that take pipeline input.

no this will not work you will need to use variables like




$Rules = Get-InboxRule -Mailbox some_mailbox -Identity rule_id

$Rules | New-InboxRule -Mailbox other_mailbox -Name $_.Name -varx $_.varx etc....
