HI All

I need to add another email address to about 150 users.
i.e
exisiting email - jbloggs@abc.com

i need to add - joebloogs@abc.com

I can do this on a user leval but need a quicker way to do this, as it would take ages for 150 users.
I am using server 2003

thanks

dsget user <UserDN ...> email - will give you the current settings
dsmod user <UserDN ...> email - will allow you to change the property

Good information on piping one command to the other here...
