Hi I have a list of 3000 email addresses & I would like to bind to AD (translate mail to sAMaccountName if necessary?)) and modify the employeeNumber for each email address.

Is this possible using the email address?  If so how can this be done in powershell or vbs?

Do you have an Exchange Server? How can we map user account to e-mail addresses?

hi accounts already exist, I'm looking to modify each account with their employee number.  the data has been presented to me with the 'unique' mapping attribute being the smtp address in one co,ume and the employee number in the other.  

Exchange 2003 is in use.

If you can have your userlist in this form of a CSV file:
    emplnum, email
    123456, administrator@ceg.hu
    ....


And if you have Quest's ActiveRoles.ADManagement snapin installed, you can use the following code to do the employee number import.
Add-PSSnapin Quest.ActiveRoles.ADManagement

import-csv c:\userlist.csv | %{Get-QADUser -Email $_.email | 
    Set-QADUser -ObjectAttributes @{employeeNumber = $_.emplnum} }

Open in new window

Then you can use the activedirectory module:

Import-Module activedirectory
import-csv c:\userlist.csv | %{$email = $_.email; Get-ADUser -Filter "mail -eq '$email'" |   
    Set-ADUser -Replace @{employeeNumber = $_.emplnum} }

Open in new window

Or, another version, if the csv file does not include the primary SMTP address, but any:

Import-Module activedirectory  
import-csv c:\userlist.csv | %{$email = "smtp:$($_.email); Get-ADUser -LDAPFilter "(proxyaddresses=$email)" |     
    Set-ADUser -Replace @{employeeNumber = $_.emplnum} }
