Reset mailbox foldernames Exchange 2010

Sometimes when you import pst’s into exchange 2010 you got some problems with language settings and foldernames. I discovered that  the option / Resetfoldernames didn’t work. So I had to look for another solution.

On the exchange 2010 server you can run the following command

Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration –Identity **alias** -dateformat "d-M-yyyy" -timezone "W. Europe Standard Time"  -timeformat "HH:mm" -Language "nl-NL" -LocalizeDefaultFolderName:$true

After running this command all your mailboxfolders wil show up in the language you specified.

If you want to do this for all the mailboxes in the organization. You can run

Get-mailbox | Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -dateformat "d-M-yyyy" -timezone "W. Europe Standard Time"  -timeformat "HH:mm" -Language "nl-NL" -LocalizeDefaultFolderName:$true
