I am trying to export the user info content for all users in a particular distribution group. Can the powerful Exchange Management Shell do this? I need information such as Department and Location for all the relevant users.

Many thanks in advance for any assistance

Should be able to do, use this as an example. I've just tested this within my lab.

Obviously check the available parameters of the Get-User CmdLet within the shell to add any additional fields to your query.
