Im new ( and very green) to power shell and Im looking for a easy way to deny all my users from accessing OWA.  We only want a few of our users to have access to it.  So with out having to go into the properties of several hundred email boxes and removing the right manualy, is there a commandlet that I can use to do this for me in mass for all users, and then go back in and add those few users that I want to have access?

get-casmailbox | foreach {if ($_.owaenabled -eq $true){$_.name}} | Set-CASMailbox -OWAEnabled $false

Was the winner, for anyone who needs to know this....
thsi command finds all the users that have OWA enabled in the mailbox and then sets that attribute to disabled.
