Create address list for rooms and equipment

Exchange Management Shell is a great tool to manage the Exchange 2010 server. Take this as an example, I did not see a place in the Exchange Management Consoloe that allows me to create a address list that is specifically for rooms or equipment resources. But by using the PowerShell command, I was able to do so.  

Just copy the following two commands into the Exchange Management Shell window, then hit the Enter. That is it!

New-AddressList -Name “All Rooms” -RecipientFilter {((RecipientType -eq ‘UserMailbox’) -and (RecipientTypeDetails -eq ‘RoomMailbox’))}

New-AddressList -Name “All Equipment” -RecipientFilter {((RecipientType -eq ‘UserMailbox’) -and (RecipientTypeDetails -eq ‘EquipmentMailbox’))}

Now go to EMC and expand Organization Configuration then click Mailbox, the two new address lists have already been created under the Address Lists tab in the right pane.
