Hi People,

Can anyone please assist me with the powershell script to display the mailbox with additional alias or different authoritative domain ?

I got a script here from one of the Experts-Exchange author jjmck:

$domain = ""
Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited | % {
	foreach ($address in $_.emailaddresses) {
		If (($address.type -eq "SMTP") -and (($address.Address.Split("@")[1] -eq $domain))) {
			$_.emailaddresses -= [Microsoft.Exchange.Data.ProxyAddress]("smtp:$($address.address)")
		}
	}
	Set-Mailbox $_.primarysmtpaddress -EmailAddresses $_.EmailAddresses
}

Open in new window


the script above was to change any email address that has different authoritative domain. what I need is to know how many records first then do the changes so that my manager know how many mailboxes affected.

so if anyone please can assist me in modifying those script above that'd be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Hello,

If you just want a count, this will do what you want:

$domain = ""
$i=0
Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited | % {
	$j=0
	foreach ($address in $_.emailaddresses) {
		If (($address.type -eq "SMTP") -and (($address.Address.Split("@")[1] -eq $domain))) {
			#$_.emailaddresses -= [Microsoft.Exchange.Data.ProxyAddress]("smtp:$($address.address)")
			$j++
		}
	}
	if ($j -ne 0) {$i++}
	#Set-Mailbox $_.primarysmtpaddress -EmailAddresses $_.EmailAddresses
} 
$i

Open in new window

JJ, why it only shows the number 0 as the result ?
I have changed the $domain = "mydomain.com"
