Exchange 2010 – Change the language of folder names in Outlook

exchange 2010, powershell / No Comments

So We had a shared mailbox that was originally opened in Finland and as such the inbox was named postilaatikkoon and sent items was named Lähetetyt.

So I thought I’d jump into OWA and change the language there, well it turns out that has nothing to do with Folder names.

So after some research I found I could use:

Outlook.exe /resetFolderNames

But the mailbox is shared so doesn’t have a enabled user to logon with so I found this Exchange PowerShell command:

set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -id "Mailbox Name" -LocalizeDefaultFolderName:$true -Language en-GB

Job done.
