$stuff = @()
$stuff = foreach($entry in import-csv inputfilename.csv){Get-Mailbox $entry.displayname | Select Alias}
$stuff | Export-Csv outputfilename.csv -notypeinformation

Your input csv file should be something like:
Displayname
User1
User2

assuming your csv is something like

Name
Joe Took
Micheal Kain

Open in new window


it would be something like

$a = import-csv c:\list.csv
$a | Get-Mailbox $_.name| select name, alias

Open in new window

You can also use the following lines of code

foreach($entry in import-csv inputfilename.csv){Get-Mailbox $entry.displayname} | Select Alias | Export-csv outputfilename.csv -Notypeinformation

Following command will only export the Alias. If you want more attributes in output then add it in select section and export it..
CSV header should be Displaynames
Import-csv test.csv | % {Get-recipient $_Displaynames | Select Alias} | Export-Csv c:\test.csv -NoTypeInformation

Now I am trying to run this cmdlet, but it is outputting the quota values and not the names. Am I missing a variable? The csv is:

Name
user1
user2

Import-csv d:\displayname.csv

%{Get-mailbox $_.Name} |select-object prohibitsendquota, issuewarningquota, prohibitsendreceivequota |export-csv D:\QuotaLimit.csv

Any thoughts?

Here is what's happening: When I add quotes around the displaynames ("john smith") and save it as csv, when I open in notepad, it shows triple quotes around the names ("""john smith"""). Some how the formatting is wrong when I save it. Even when I save it as a text file, it still shows triple quotation marks.

Any thoughts?

You don't need quotes in the csv
