I have a list of e-mail addresses. I would like to query Active Directory and get the user logon name attached to each e-mail address. I was trying to use Get-ADUser but keep running into problems. Could someone point me in the right direction?

Couple of different ways to do this. If you have exchange 2007 or later you can just poll exchange for the info get-mailbox -identity $username

If you need to poll ad for it you will find that the built in AD commandlets or not so good however Quest has released a free set of commandlets to extend AD access from powershell.

Using the Quest commandlet it would be simply:

get-qaduser | where {$_.email -eq "user@domain.com"}
