How can I do the whole company at once? I setup up OOF reply during a migration for everyone now I need to take it off.

I ran it and it did something. The below is displayed

PS Z:\> Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited -Filter {(RecipientTypeDetails -eq 'UserMailbox') | Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfig
uration  -AutoReplyState Disabled -ExternalMessage $null -InternalMessage $null
>>
The cursor is just blinking next to the >>
Is it waiting for more input?

Thanks for your help!!

Are you running this on the same server where exchange mailboxes exists?

Try this first:

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited -Filter {(RecipientTypeDetails -eq 'UserMailbox')

let me know the outcome

I have tried for around 10 mailboxes and got the results working. I guess you have too many mailboxes and is the reason for the delay.

Try:
Get-Mailbox -ResultSize 5 -Filter {(RecipientTypeDetails -eq 'UserMailbox')

then Try :
Get-Mailbox -ResultSize 5 -Filter {(RecipientTypeDetails -eq 'UserMailbox') | Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration  –AutoReplyState Disabled –ExternalMessage $null –InternalMessage $null

we just take 5 mailboxes and see how it goes.

It came back with a list of all the mailboxes, some show enabled, some are disabled. Maybe I didn't let the run long enough. There are over 100 mailboxes.

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited -Filter {(RecipientTypeDetails -eq 'UserMailbox') | Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration  –AutoReplyState Disabled –ExternalMessage $null –InternalMessage $null



$UserAccounts = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited
ForEach ($user in $UserAccounts)
{
Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration $user.name –AutoReplyState Disabled –ExternalMessage $null –InternalMessage $null;
}
