OK,
Given a CSV format like this:

"Alias","Hits","Size"
"JohnDoe","78173","163625808"
"PincoPall","24626","-1789110063"
"LucyRoss","17204","1959963618"
"FrankScaglione","15796","-55874279"

in csvList.csv

You can use:

import-csv csvList.csv | Select Alias | disable-mailbox


OBVIOUSLY: First try with a CSV of ONE entry of a test user. Then, if evthng's ok, give it a go.

What do you want to do, to disable just the mailbox or the whole user in AD?

Just disable the mailbox please mate. In AD the user needs to remain active.

No, it was just to contemplate the case in which your list has more than a column.

If you have full list of aliases (on one row) separated by a comma, you should use something else. is that the case?

for example you should use something like that:

$a=get-content CsvList.csv
Foreach-Object -Inputobject $a.split(",") -process disable-mailbox $_

always test it with a single or a couple of test aliases.
HTH, bye!

Better:

limit the output of a given number of lines from CsvList.csvwith with

$a=get-content CsvList.csv -totalcount 1
