Office 365: Connect to Exchange Online Powershell

Share This:

Exchange Online Powershell

With an on-premises Exchange environment, you would connect using the Exchange Shell which you would need installed on the server or workstation. If you’re new to Exchange Online, things are a little different. Instead, you use the regular Windows Powershell, create a Remote Powershell Session, then run your commands.

  • Open Powershell
  • Type $UserCredential = Get-Credential and enter your credentials when prompted
  • Start a new session by typing:

    $Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri -Credential $UserCredential -Authentication Basic -AllowRedirection

  • Run Import-PSSession $Session -DisableNameChecking
  • End your Exchange Online Powershell by running Remove-PSSession $Session

You can also use the TechNet Gallery Script.
