If you are managing Office 365 Exchange hosted mail systems and wish to connect to PS from your PC here are simple steps to get the work done. The remote PowerShell will provide you real easy way to manage your SMTP organization.
In this Example:
Office 365 SMTP domain we will connect too is @messagetalk.onmicrosoft.com and I am going to use my User name which has administrator privileges, odedeal@firstname.lastname@example.org
From administrator PS
- Open PS with Administrator privileges
|$LiveCred = Get-Credential|
- Run fallowing command ( don’t make any changes ) copy and paste into PS window.
$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri https://ps.outlook.com/powershell/ -Credential $LiveCred -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection
- Next run this PS
Now we are connected we can see our mailboxes etc.
If we look from GUI we have same users , we can use GUI to manage these users now as well as PS from our management PC
