    I need to create email accounts in powershell. I know how to create them using exchange shell, but how would I do it from "regular" powershell? The -ConfigurationName and -ConnectionUri are correct. We're using Exchange 2013.

    Is there a import module for exchange like Import-Module ActiveDirectory?

    $Exchange = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri

    if I do

    New-PSSession -ComputerName HQVEX01

    , it opens the session

    Thank you,

    Give this a go, remoting etc.. will need to be enabled on the other end

    $Username = "Domain\User.Name"
    	$Password = ConvertTo-SecureString "Password" -AsPlainText -Force
    	$cred = new-object -typename System.Management.Automation.PSCredential -argumentlist $username, $password
    	$SESJA_EX = New-PSSession -Credential $cred -ConnectionUri http://Exhchangeserver/powershell -ConfigurationName
    	Import-PSSession $SESJA_EX

    Thanks Mark,

    If I'm running powershell already as as admin, do I still need the $Username and $Password?
