Need some help with a powershell command. I'm kinda new with using powershell.

How can i append something to a current variable. Is it even possible.  For example the command below

$mailbox = get-mailbox 'testuser'

now $mailbox holds the value for testuser,

how can i add other users into the variable also. For example I wanted to add testuser10 to the variable.  

So when i run $mailbox i'll get the info for both user.  My point for doing this is so i can run a command to delete some emails for a few users. The command i want to be able to run when i have all my users in the variables is below.

$mailbox| Search-Mailbox -SearchQuery 'Subject:"this is a test"' -DeleteContent

thanks in advance.

Try to set the var as a array..
$mailbox = @()
$mailbox += get-mailbox 'testuser'
$mailbox += get-mailbox 'testuser10'

Open in new window

And if you have a list of users in txt file.. Try..
$mailbox = GC c:\users.txt | Get-mailbox

Open in new window

Other ways to get an array is
$mailbox += , (get-mailbox 'testuser')
$mailbox += , (get-mailbox 'testuser10')

Open in new window

or
$mailbox = 'testuser', 'testuser10' | get-mailbox

Open in new window

or
$mailbox = , (get-mailbox 'testuser'), (get-mailbox 'testuser10')

Open in new window

(and many more).
