Ladies and Gents,

I am looking to modify the following code:

$content = get-content "c:\test.txt"
start-transcript C:\exportmailbox.txt
foreach ($user in $content){
$Access = (Get-Mailbox $user | Get-MailboxPermission | where {$_AccessRights -eq "FullAccess"}).User
if($Access -notcontains "domain\username"){
add-mailboxpermission -Id $user -User “testadmin” -AccessRights FullAccess -Deny:$false}
export-mailbox $user -IncludeFolders "\Inbox","\Sent Items","\Deleted Items" -pstfolderpath c:\$user._Mailbox.pst
stop-transcript}

Open in new window


The specific section would be the

pstfolderpath c:\$user._Mailbox.pst

Open in new window


I would like to do the following:

lets assume the following:

The Users Name is "John Smith"
Then I would like the pstfolderpath to read pstfolderpath c:\jsmith.pst

Assume that the Active Directory account name for John Smith does not contain jsmith as the return.

You can try the code below to get JSmith as file name. What do you want the name to be if AD account name has Jsmith?

$content = get-content "c:\test.txt"
start-transcript C:\exportmailbox.txt
foreach ($user in $content){
$Access = (Get-Mailbox $user | Get-MailboxPermission | where {$_AccessRights -eq "FullAccess"}).User
if($Access -notcontains "domain\username"){
[string]$Filename =  $user.substring(0,1)+$user.split(" ")[1]
add-mailboxpermission -Id $user -User “testadmin” -AccessRights FullAccess -Deny:$false}
export-mailbox $user -IncludeFolders "\Inbox","\Sent Items","\Deleted Items" -pstfolderpath c:\$Filename.pst
stop-transcript}

What do you want the name to be if AD account name has Jsmith?

if the AD already shows "jsmith" then leave the value jsmith.

I mean what you want the name of the file to be? Is it the AD account name or "First letter of first name and last name" as in JSmith?

Yes,

The file  should be "jsmith.pst" even if the name in active directory says otherwise.

Thanks for you assistance thus far.
