The first place I would look is in Powershell itself. Run the 'get-excommand' tool. That will print out all the Exchange-related powershell commands. Most of them are common-sense though, as it follows a standardised naming scheme.

You can then use the command get-help (command) to list the help information for any command. For example, get-help get-mailbox will list the help and usage instrutions for the get-mailbox command.

You can use get-mailbox -Identity <username> for reading out the email aliases (as well as other information about a user). get-distributiongroup will print out all distribution groups in the organization.

If you really want to get into Powershell properly, you might want to start with http://blogs.technet.com/askperf/archive/2007/07/03/getting-started-with-windows-powershell.aspx to learn the basics, moving on at the top end to http://www.amazon.com/Professional-Windows-PowerShell-Exchange-Programmer/dp/0470226447 for learning it a little more professionally.
