Remove AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom restriction

I've got a resource mailbox with the restriction set to only accept messages from certain people.  This was set in Exchange 2010 through the GUI and I cannot find that in 2013.  Does anybody know how to remove this restriction?  I know how to and and remove from the list but need to totally remove the restriction so that it will accept messages from anyone.

It  can be changed from both GUI and EMS. Follow this:

Open EAC>Recipients>Mailboxes>Edit>Mailbox Features>Message Delivery Restrictions>View Details

Change according to your need. Select All Senders in your case.

Click Ok>Close the page and click save.

This will work for a regular mailbox but not a Resource Mailbox.  Resource Mailboxes do not show up under mailboxes, you have to go to the resources tab.    Mail Delivery Restrictions is not an option for a Resource Mailbox.  I'm able to add/remove users using the shell but now I want to totally remove the setting.

Steps given by Amit also works I think. try using powershell:

Set-Mailbox -DisplayName "Conf Room" -AcceptMessagesOnlyFrom:$null

KB shows, that get-mailbox and set-mailbox can be used for these type of mailbox. Can you run

get-mailbox -identify resouremailboxname | fl

Post here.
Amit KumarCommented:
If set-mailbox command works for you then you can check results by below command:

get-mailbox -DisplayName "Conf Room" | ft *accept*

If there is no account then it will show you NULL value. then check and confirm

I have  been using set-mailbox to and/remove users.  I appears that setting it to null removes the restriction.  I was able to verify this by comparing results from the get-mailbox -identify resouremailboxname | fl command on different resources.

Thanks guys!
