i have exchange setup under sbs 2003.  i have about 60 users.  is there an easy way of extract the exact login name and email address(es) for each user without having to go into each one individually?  The addressing scheme does not appear to follow any pattern!

what you do is go to active directory.  click on your domain and go to find.

when the box opens, go to "Find:" and select Exchange Recipients

Under the General Tab select "Users with Exchange mailbox"

Uncheck the rest

Now click Find Now

alright, i'm trying to create a script for you.  so far i got it where you can export it to a text file, the name and the email addresses, but not the login name.  i'll work on that.

but this is what you need to do:

1. Start > Run > cmd

type this in precisely:

dsquery * -filter "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(mail=*))" -attr mail displayname -limit 0 > c:\emailaddresses.txt

then go to your C: and look for that text file

Just go to the SBS Server Management Console > Users Snap-in

Then from the main menu choose > Action > Export List and save it as a .csv file.

It doesn't get any easier than that!
