The following will work using the build in DS series of tools.
dsquery user -samid * -limit 0 | dsget user -ln -fn -samid -email >c:\users.txt

And a second method using the Quest powershell cmdlets.

get-qaduser | select-object firstname,lastname,email,samaccountname | export-csv c:\users.csv

This is pretty close. I need username, all email addresses associated with that user, primary email address, full name.  I'm moving from 2003 sbs to 2010 exchange and going to do everything fresh. I'm looking for a way to streamline the process to of creating the users on the exchange 2010 server.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

Ok this might make it a little bit messy because all of the email addresses are stored in an array called proxyaddresses. Give below a shot and let me know.

get-qaduser | select-object firstname,lastname,email,samaccountname,proxyaddresses | export-csv c:\users.csv

The source server is exchange 2003 SBS, so the query failed.

I dont think that should cause a problem with the script.

Try this and let me know if it works.

get-qaduser {username} | select-object proxyaddresses

Oh ok you just need to install the quest cmdlets on your workstation.
http://www.quest.com/powershell/activeroles-server.aspx

These dont need to be installed on the server just your management workstation.

csvde -f ourput.csv -r "(proxyaddresses=*)" -l Displayname,proxyaddresses,mail,sn,givenname

To filter only users with mailbox (excluding groups and contacts),
csvde -f ourput.csv -r "((Homemdb=*)" -l Displayname,proxyaddresses,mail,sn,givenname
