A default mailbox policy is created when you create a new UM dial plan. You can choose to leave the default settings, customize the default policy, or create a new policy to link to the UM Dial Plan. You will need to configure the UM mailboxes to use the custom UM mailbox policy.
Creating a new UM mailbox policy
Use the following steps to create a new UM mailbox policy:
- Open the EMC with an administrator account that has the Exchange Organization Administrator role.
- Expand "Organization Configuration" and click "Unified Messaging."
- Select the "UM Mailbox Policies" tab in the "Work" pane.
- Select "New UM Mailbox Policy" in the "Actions" pane.
- Type the name of the UM mailbox policy in the "Name" field, as shown below.
- Click "Browse," then select a UM dial plan to associate with the mailbox policy, and click "OK."
- Click "New."
- Click "Finish."
As an alternative to the EMC, you can also use the New-UMMailboxPolicy cmdlet in the EMS, like in this example:
[PS]C:>New-UMMailboxPolicy -Name "ROC-NY-UM Mailbox Policy" -UMDialPlan "Rochester NY"
