Using Power Shell to configure Receive Connector on Exchange 2013

Most of us still use GUI to configure or check receive connector. Since Exchange 2013 has been announced, we may start using power shell instead of GUI. Because GUI is web based now. If you have any problem on it, the best way to manage Exchange 2013 is to use Power shell.

Let’s have quick look same basic power shell commands

Our first basic command is Get-Receiveconnector


For more information

Get-receiveconnector |fl


To change the maximum size of receiving email

Set-receiveconnector -identity “Sonatexc01\Default Frontend SonatExc01” -maxmessagesize 25MB



If you look closer above screenshot Default Frontend SonatExc01 was disabled. To enable any receive connector

Set-receiveconnector -identity “sonatexc01\default frontend sonatexc01” -enabled $true


Of course, there are more option you can use, for more details “help set-receiveconnector”
