CreateManagedFolder Operation

The CreateManagedFolder operation creates a managed folder in the Exchange store.

The CreateManagedFolder operation adds a managed custom folder to a user's mailbox. You can use the Exchange Management Shell Get-ManagedFolder cmdlet to find available managed folders to add. Although this cmdlet returns both managed custom folders and managed default folders, only managed custom folders can be added. Managed custom folders are identified by the ManagedCustomFolder folder type. The System.DirectoryServices namespace also includes types that can be used to discover the names of available managed folders.

Note Note

You cannot use Exchange Web Services to find the names of available managed folders to add to a mailbox.

You can use the FindFolder and GetFolder operations to access managed folders. FindFolder is used to search for folders in a specified parent folder. This can be used so that managed folders can be discovered in a folder before trying to add a duplicate managed custom folder to the same directory. GetFolder is used after the FindFolder operation to get more information about a managed custom folder.

For information about how to set up messaging records management (MRM) policy, see How to Create a Managed Folder Mailbox Policy.

For information about how to remove managed custom folders from a mailbox, see Remove-ManagedFolder.

Description

The following example of a CreateManagedFolder request shows how to add a managed folder named Test Managed Folder to a mailbox.

Note Note

You can also use delegate access to add managed custom folders.
