Enable Exchange ActiveSync on a Mailbox with PowerShell

roualin ex-mgmt-shell1 Enable Exchange ActiveSync on a Mailbox with PowerShellExchange 2007 brought some changes to managing mailboxes, most notably, the removal of Exchange tabs from Active Directory. In Exchange 2003, to enable Exchange ActiveSync for a mailbox, you would simply open the ADUC properties for a user, click the Exchange Features tab, click Exchange ActiveSync, and then click Enable.

Today, with Exchange 2007 and Exchange 2010, the function isn’t quite as easily found, but it’s much easier to use. On any machine with the Exchange Management Tools loaded, fire up the Exchange Management Shell (this won’t work in your regular PowerShell terminal) and type the following, replacing “Firstname Lastname” with the user’s first and last name, or their user ID, in quotes.

 Get-Mailbox "Firstname Lastname" Set-CASMailbox -ActiveSyncEnabled $true
