Looking for a solution to create a Subfolder under User's folder in Outlook which should be visible for them. Want to do it from Exchange powershell. I was trying this down below and getting errors:

$mailboxes = Get-Mailbox -Server EX2KMBOX
$mailboxes | foreach { New-ManagedFolder -name $($_.Alias) -FolderName "$($_.Alias):\eBrochure" -StorageQuota '50Mb' -Comment 'Messages in this folder are retained for 2 Weeks' -MustDisplayComment $true }


And as I understand I'm totally wrong as it is creating set of custom managed folder which is not right.

Any advice on this?

OK I see you got no answers so I will try to  help

1) we have to start by creating a managed folder just one not one per user so
 New-ManagedFolder -name eBrochure -FolderName "eBrochure" -StorageQuota '50Mb' -Comment 'Messages in this folder are retained for 2 Weeks' -MustDisplayComment $true

2) Create a managed folder policy

New-ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy -Name "eBrochureFolderPolicy" -ManagedFolderLinks 'eBrochure'


3) apply it to the users


Set-Mailbox -Identity youmailbox -ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy "CeBrochureFolderPolicy"

of course if this works you can

$mailboxes = Get-Mailbox -Server EX2KMBOX
$mailboxes | Set-Mailbox -ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy "CeBrochureFolderPolicy"

Tanks much! It works. But, I got one problem. I cannot apply Managed Folder Policy to the users with Archived Enabled. Is it any workaround?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Mailbox 'Armen Minasyan' cannot be Archive enabled with Managed Folders Policy. Archives are supported only with Retent
ion Policy.

BTW, instead of ManagedFolderMailboxPolicy I applied retention policy to it and enable archive. So, it is totally resolved - Thanks to Akhater.
