Hosted Exchange - How to check if a Mailbox allows Outlook Anywhere

Some Mailboxes in Hosted Exchange may not allow Outlook Anywhere, this is when they have been created as Basic Users and have been upgraded to Standard Users. The guide shows how to check this and how to rectify this.

#1 Get-CASMailbox


Open the Exchange Management Shell and run the commandlet Get-CASMailbox | FL

This will now display all the properties for the CAS Mailbox.

#2 MAPIBlockOutlookRpcHttp


Check the property MAPIBlockOutlookRpcHttp if this is set to True then the user is blocked from Outlook Anywhere.

#3 Change Setting


Extend the commandlet to change the setting for the mailbox using the boolean setting True False

Get-CASMailbox | Set-CASMailbox -MAPIBlockOutlookRpcHttp $false

#4 Check Change


Run the Get-CASMailbox and check the setting has now changed to False
