Creating a Trusted Account for E-mail Security Tests
Our E-Mail Threat Simulator module requires a test account for making and reporting the tests listed here. This document contains sample configurations for making possible security and reliability checks with this test account.
The test account will only receive email and will not be able to send mail to any internal or external email address except us. This is a safe configuration option that will prevent potential violations.

Creating Test Account

The test account required for operations can be created with Exchange Powershell using the following command:
The Exchange Management Shell is started with a user who has Organization Administration permissions.
New-Mailbox -UserPrincipalName “UserPrincipalName” -Alias “Mail Alias” -Name “Mailbox Account Name” -Database “Database Name” -OrganizationalUnit “<Organizational Unit>” -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $false –password (ConvertTo-SecureString -String “Password” -AsPlainText -Force)
New-Mailbox -UserPrincipalName [email protected] -Alias ets -Name ETS -Database PERDB -OrganizationalUnit OU=SNR,DC=keepnet,DC=aws -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $false –password (ConvertTo-SecureString -String ‘[email protected]’ -AsPlainText -Force)
