Hello,

I have a CSV file containing entries I would like to add to an Exchange Distribution List using Powershell. I have learned how to create a distribution list using Powershell, but still not sure how to add a list of entries into the Distribution List via Powershell.

I can create a distribution list like this and it works:

New-DistributionGroup -name "ITDepartment" -IgnoreNamingPolicy

Now that I have a Distribution Group, how do I add members into it using Powershell? Here is the structure of my CSV file, and it is located on my c: drive:

<Email>,<FullName>

How can I use PowerShell to add a line entry from this CSV file into the Distribution List I created? Then, how would I use PowerShell to add all entries from the CSV file?

Thanks for your help.
