I want toGet-mailbox -identity "User1" | Export-Mailbox -IncludeFolders "\Sent Items" -SubjectKeywords "Joke666" -StartDate "05/11/2011" -RecipientKeywords john.doe@domain.com -pathtoPST c:\user1.pst

Get-mailbox -identity "User2" | Export-Mailbox -IncludeFolders "\Sent Items" -SubjectKeywords "Joke666" -StartDate "05/11/2011" -RecipientKeywords john.doe@domain.com -pathtoPST c:\user2.pst

And so on up until User80. Rather than me sitting at the keyboard doing one, waiting for it to complete, then another, is there a way to compile these so I can place them in an Excel file (for example) and just run them as one batch in Powershell?

Secondly, instead of the above, is there way a to run the following:

Get-content c:\userlist | Get-mailbox | Export-Mailbox -IncludeFolders "\Sent Items" -SubjectKeywords "Joke666" -StartDate "05/11/2011" -RecipientKeywords john.doe@domain.com -pathtoPST c:\<username>.pst
