Quick Tip – New-MailboxFolder – Exchange 2013



New-MailboxFolder doesn’t have the capability of creating folders in users mailboxes.

When administrator is logged in . It has the capability of creating a folder only in Administrator mailbox

So an administrator cannot create Custom root folders in users mailboxes using this command. (RBAC has Implicit read scope set to Self – Which cannot be overridden)

EWS Managed API is the only alternative available to accomplish these tasks

PS —

To Create Folder in Administrator Mailbox

New-MailboxFolder -Parent administrator -Name Folder1

To Create Folder in Administrator Mailbox Below Inbox Folder

New-MailboxFolder -Parent :\Inbox -Name Folder1


Trying to Create a mailbox folder in user mailbox called “RR”

You will endup with an Error –saying it Doesn’t exist as it doesn’t have read permissions over the other objects


New-MailboxFolder -Parent RR -Name Folder1
The specified mailbox “RR” doesn’t exist.
