Error when attempting to customize mailbox quota system messages

I've been tasked with customizing the verbiage in certain mailbox quota-related Exchange system messages.  I'm running Exchange 2010 SP3 in a Windows 2008 R2 domain.

When attempting the following:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-SystemMessage En\WarningMailbox -Text "My verbiage"

I get this:

The operation couldn't be performed because object 'En\WarningMailbox' couldn't be found on 'ceadc2.intranet.ceadvisors
.com'.
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [Set-SystemMessage], ManagementObjectNotFoundException
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : F2D4AAFC,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.Dsn.SetSystemMessage

I've confirmed with the "Get-SystemMessage -Original" command that built-in system messages exist and saw them listed in every language in the Exchange Powershell.

Moreover, my users are receiving the built-in system message verbiage when their mailboxes approach their defined quota.

"ceadc2.intranet.ceadvisors.com" reflects a domain controller on my network. I understand the ties between Exchange and the domain controller, but don't understand why it's erroring out there.

Any assistance in getting passed this would be greatly appreciated.

You can't do a set if the item doesn't exist.
You need to do a new-system message first.

New-SystemMessage -QuotaMessageType WarningMailbox -Language en -Text "Delete some email your hoarder, do you think hard disk space is free?"

Then use set-systemmessage to change the text.

Simon,

That took.  I assigned my customized verbiage with the New-SystemMessage cmdlet, so I assume I don't need to do anything else?

Nothing else needs to be done unless you need to change something.
