How to: Configure custom mailtips in Exchange 2010

MailTips is a new feature in 2010, which displays informational message while a user composes a message. As an administrator, you can configure custom mailtips for a mailbox, distribution group, dynamic distribution group, mail contact and mail enabled public folders.

In this example, I want the users to see the message “Please send only e-mails with ICT related problems” while they compose an email to the ICT Helpdesk. This can be done in two ways, either from Exchange Control Panel (ECP) or Shell.

Run the following shell command to set this feature.
Set-MailBox -Identity HelpdeskICT -MailTip “Please send only e-mails with ICT related problems”
