Outlook Web Access is in the wrong language for one user

After moving mailbox’s from Exchange 2003 to 2010, one remote user reported their OWA was in Spanish.

OWA is in Spanish - wrong language

This can be fun to try and walk them through changing the OWA language options over the phone when the options are in spanish so I opted to fix it via the Exchange Management Shell:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>Set-MailboxRegionalConfiguration -Identity jsmith -Language en-us

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-mailboxregionalconfiguration -identity dlogsdon |fl

Alternatively, you can change the setting via Outlook Web Access:

Options > See All Options… > Settings > Regional > Language
Outlook Web Access Regional, Language and Time Zone Settings
