Creating an Exchange Mailbox

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to create an Exchange Mailbox for an existing user through AutoIT. I have Exchange Management Shell installed on my server and can run the following command fine through it to enable the mailbox:

Enable-Mailbox -Identity Username -Database MyDatabase

Is there any way of doing this through AutoIT? Thanks in advance!

Sure. IIRC I posted an example how AutoIt calls Powershell to create a Mailbox. 

Should be easy to find ;)

Hi @rossy, and welcome to the AutoIt forum :)
Yes, you can do it.
Take a look at Run() functions in the Help file.

Best Regards.

Thanks water. I've got it now and it works a treat :) 

Also thank you very much  for creating the AD.au3 UDF, I've been using it extensively for automating the creating of users in AD. Could the function you posted here be integrated into the _AD_CreateMailbox function?

Maybe create a new function _AD_CreateMailboxPS?

Yes, that would be useful for future use. :)

Such a function would set @error to tell if the PowerShell command was successful or not. The Powershell output (STDOUT or STDERR) would be returned as a string.
Example:

Local $sResult = Test()
If @error Then
    $iError = @error
    _ArrayDisplay(StringSplit($sResult, @CRLF, $STR_ENTIRESPLIT), "Error " & $iError & " was returned!")
Else
    _ArrayDisplay(StringSplit($sResult, @CRLF, $STR_ENTIRESPLIT), "Successful!")
EndIf

Func Test()
    Local $sCMD = "Powershell -Command -", $sSTDOUT = "", $sSTDERR = "", $bError = False
    $iPID = Run($sCMD, @SystemDir, @SW_MAXIMIZE, $STDIN_CHILD + $STDOUT_CHILD + $STDERR_CHILD)
    If @error Then Return SetError(2, 0, "")
    StdinWrite($iPID, "Get-ChildItem C:\TEMP -directory")
    If @error Then Return SetError(3, 0, "")
    StdinWrite($iPID)
    ; Process STDOUT
    While 1
        $sOutput = StdoutRead($iPID)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        If $sOutput <> "" Then $sSTDOUT = $sSTDOUT & $sOutput
    WEnd
    ; Process STDERR
    While 1
        $sOutput = StderrRead($iPID)
        If @error Then ExitLoop
        If $sOutput <> "" Then $sSTDERR = $sSTDERR & $sOutput
        $bError = True
    WEnd
    If $bError Then
        Return SetError(1, 0, $sSTDERR)
    Else
        Return $sSTDOUT
    EndIf
EndFunc   ;==>Test


Which parameters would be needed for_AD_CreateMailboxPS?
I'm thinking of

  • User to create the mailbox for
  • URI of the Exchange server where to create the mailbox
  • Optional: Alias of the mailbox
  • Optional: Authentication Method (Kerberos ...)
  • Optional: Specify all other needed PS parameters

What do you think?

That sounds great. I'd also have an optional parameter for the database, which can be added to the Powershell script as -Database. What is the "Alias of the mailbox" parameter?

Useful failures returned to @error could be similar to the original _AD_CreateMailbox function:

    1 - $sUser does not exist
     2 - $sUser already has a mailbox

Thanks for your help :)

Version to play with :)
The function mainly uses two PowerShell commands to create the mailbox: Session and Enable-Mailbox.
I added two optional parameters to _AD_CreateMailboxPS which let you specify additional parameters for this PS commands.

#include <AD.au3>
_AD_Open()

Local $sUser = "username-goes-here"                                    ; <== MODIFY
Local $sURI = "http://YourExchangeServerNameGoesHere.CompanyName.com"  ; <== MODIFY

Local $vResult = _AD_CreateMailboxPS($sUser, $sURI)
$iError = @error
$iExtended = @extended
If $iError Then
    If IsString($vResult) Then
        MsgBox(0, "Error!", "_AD_CreateMailboxPS returned @error = " & $iError & ", @extended = " & $iExtended)
    Else
        _ArrayDisplay($vResult, "_AD_CreateMailboxPS returned @error = " & $iError & ", @extended = " & $iExtended)
    EndIf
Else
    _ArrayDisplay($vResult, "Successful!")
EndIf
_AD_Close()

Glad I'm not the only one that misses it! :)

It's working great thanks, I just had to change one line to get it to work, it was missing a semicolon. 

";Remove-PSSession $Session"

I tried some false data, for example users that didn't exist or users that already had a mailbox, which always returns this:

_AD_CreateMailboxPS returned @error = 0, @extended = 0.

Thanks again for all your help with this.

A user that doesn't exist should return @error = 1 as this is checked in the function.
What is the return value (array of messages) when you test users that don't exist or users that already have a mailbox?

I see the error :) Should be fixed now.

#include <AD.au3>

_AD_Open()
Local $vResult = _AD_CreateMailboxPS("TestUser", "http://YourExchangeServerNameGoesHere.CompanyName.com")
If @error > 0 Then
    If @error < 7 Then
        MsgBox(0, "Error!", "_AD_CreateMailboxPS returned @error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
    Else
        _ArrayDisplay($vResult, "_AD_CreateMailboxPS returned @error = " & @error & ", @extended = " & @extended)
    EndIf
Else
    _ArrayDisplay($vResult, "Successful!")
EndIf
_AD_Close()
Exit

That's great thanks, if you have a second the following Powershell Exchange functions would be useful:

Delete a Mailbox.

Move a mailbox to another database.

I've managed to put together a basic AutoIT function that does this, but can't get my head around the error detection. The Powershell for both of the functions are:

_AD_DeleteMailboxPS:

(Errors would be User doesn't exist, user doesn't have a mailbox, user is empty, connectionurl is empty)

$sCMD = "$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri " & $sURI & " " & $sSessionParam & _
        ";Import-PSSession $Session" & _
        ";Disable-Mailbox " & $sUser & " -Confirm:$false " & $sMailboxParam & _
        ";Remove-PSSession $Session"

_AD_MoveMailboxDatabasePS

(Errors would be user doesn't exist, user doesn't have mailbox, target database doesn't exist, user is empty, connectionurl is empty, database is empty)

$sCMD = "$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri " & $sURI & " " & $sSessionParam & _
        ";Import-PSSession $Session" & _
        ";New-MoveRequest -Identity " & $sUser & & " -TargetDatabase " & $database & " " & $sMailboxParam & _
        ";Remove-PSSession $Session"
