You can simply go to Email address tab ... uncheck the option for "Update Automatically" and then put the Email addresses in.

I have quite a few though and would rather not have to copy and paste each individual email address.

So you basically are looking for a script ?

Do you have the email address with user in Excel\Text ?

If the email address is just a format like @somthing.com - than maybe you can have that in Recipient policy and Apply.

It is a prod server but the user is new so can test away with the correct one.

Import-module ActiveDirectory  

Import-CSV "C:\Scripts\Users.csv" | % {

$User = Domain\UserName

$ID = $_.mail

Set-ADUser $User -EmailAddress $ID

}

Run the above cmdlet with 1 user and few others added to the script.

Exchange_Geek : I guess the same command is shared in the above link i gave :)

Exchange_GeekCommented:
It is the same command, however what you missed was the part that the command was for adding email address to individual mailbox and not just ONE mailbox, so I modified it a bit to ensure it meets the need of the hour.

Does this help with 1 user many email addresses?

Christ sake, been working so much on E2010 these days, forgot that you're question was for E2003.

I guess the link given by Rancy should work for you, if it doesn't we're all ears to listen to your feedback.

I hate not fully understanding this.

Sorry guys ive never really used powershell before.

My spreadsheet is called email.csv and contains 1 column with email addresses.

Could you please confirm how the script should be.

thanks
