I'm a Microsoft MVP for Office Servers and Services, which includes products and services such as Office 365, Exchange Online, and Exchange Server on-premises.

PowerShell has become the command line interface and scripting language for all of Microsoft's products, and learning PowerShell is critical for IT professionals of all levels, whether it's for performing one-off administrative tasks, or managing thousands of users, mailboxes, or servers, or automatic repetitive processes.

This course covers, at an intermediate level, how to use PowerShell to perform administration tasks on Exchange mailboxes and distribution groups.

Some of the topics that we'll cover include:

  • Creating different types of mailboxes,
  • Managing mailbox permissions and shared access,
  • Configuring calendar processing for room and equipment mailboxes,
  • Creating distribution groups and managing their members,
  • And we'll even take a look at some reporting and automation scenarios where PowerShell really shines.
By the end of this course you'll be able to confidently perform common mailbox and distribution group administrative tasks in PowerShell, and have and understanding of how to apply your PowerShell skills to other scenarios you encounter on the job.

Before beginning the course you should be familiar with the basics of Active Directory, Exchange, and PowerShell.

I hope you'll join me on this journey to learning Exchange mailbox and distribution group management using PowerShell
