Using a Wildcard to build an Exchange 2007 address list

I am trying to upgrade our LDAP based address lists to OPATH.  I would like to use this syntax to build a new (or upgrade, which ever you prefer) dynamic address list but it is not working...  It just does not build the list.  

Set-AddressList 'Microsoft' -RecipientFilter { (RecipientType -eq 'MailContact' -and EmailAddresses -eq '*@Microsoft.com') }

However, when I use either one of the following it works; assuming the mail contact has "Microsoft" in the description field or I specify an exact email address and remove the Wildcard.

Set-AddressList 'Microsoft' -RecipientFilter { (RecipientType -eq 'MailContact' -and Description -eq 'Microsoft') }

This would be fine if I did not have to go through hundreds and hundreds of contacts and update their description...

or

Set-AddressList 'Microsoft' -RecipientFilter { (RecipientType -eq 'MailContact' -and EmailAddresses -eq 'UserEmail@Microsoft.com') }

This one just builds the list with the one person's email address...

Any help is much appreciated.  Thank you in advance.

Simon

You can't use -EQ and wildcards. You need to use -LIKE and the the wildcard.

Set-AddressList 'Microsoft' -RecipientFilter { (RecipientType -eq 'MailContact' -and EmailAddresses -like '*@Microsoft.com') }

I swear I tried using the "like" operator and it did not work...  

Oh well, It did this time.
