Exchange 2010 Bypassed Senders Domains Content Filter Config

I'm trying to import a CSV file with a list of domains to be added to the BypassedSenderDomains list, however I don't seem to be having much success.  Here is the script I am using:

$domains = import-csv "e:\WhiteList.csv"
foreach($domain in $domains){
$list = (Get-ContentFilterConfig).BypassedSenderDomains
$list.add($domain.”dom”)
}
set-contentfilterconfig -BypassedSenderDomains:$list

Am i right, in that I'm just copying and pasting this into powershell?

After this is done, the powershell remains at the >> prompt, which I don't know how to get out of, aside from just closing it out, and reopening.  Also when trying to see if the list populated by typing Get-ContentFilterConfig, nothing happens, but returns to a blank line with >>

My csv file is formatted with the dom as the column name, and the list of columns below it.

It looks like you're trying to add entries by using the get-contentfilterconfig cmdlet. That's not actually possible. You have to use set-contentfilterconfig to add the entries to the list. So instead of your
$list = (Get-ContentFilterConfig).BypassedSenderDomains
$list.add($domain.”dom”)
lines, use
set-contentfilterconfig -bypassedsenderdomains $list

I replaced the Get-ContentFilterConfig text with Set-ContentFilterConfig text, however same thing, it's still at the prompt with the >> and not applying my list.

Can you please provide the full entry I need perform my csv import.

Thank you.

I even tried doing this manually without importing a csv file, doing as follows:

At the PS prompt:

$list = (Get-ContentFilterConfig).BypassedSenderDomains
$List.add(“*.microsoft.com”,"*.dell.com")
set-contentfilterconfig -bypassedsenderdomains:$list

However after enterting the $List.add command, I'm getting an error as follows:

Cannot find an overload for "Add" and the argument count: "2"
At line:1 char:10
+ $List.add <<<< (*.microsoft.com","*.dell.com")

It doesn't seem to like multiple entries. when I enter a domains individually in the $List.add command, it goes through fine, but when I try adding more than when, seperating domains with a comma, with or without quotation marks, it errors out.

You have to add them one at a time. From a CSV you would do this:

$import = import-csv <file>
foreach ($domain in $import)
{
set-contentfilterconfig -bypassedsenderdomains $domain.<heading>
}

Replace <heading> with whatever you have as the first line for the domain's your adding in your CSV file.

I've been adding it one at a time, a paint, but couldn't get the csv import to work.
