Creating Subfolder in Outlook from Exchange 2010 SP1

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?

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.
