I am running the following command to dump all mailboxes to pst

Get-Mailbox | Export-Mailbox -PSTFolderPath e:\current

The problem i have is it prompts to push "A" for all, is there a way to pass this is a scipt so i can automate it.

I have tried adding /A and |A  but neither works.

Not at a powershell console to test but I think you can set the system variable to not nprompt by:
$ConfirmPreference = 'None'

Just wanted to add that the default is 'High' and you may want to set it back to at the end of your script to stop you doing something "bad" accidentally.
