Hi again folks looking for additional help following my latest question.

In that question I wanted to know if I could default set active sync to disabled for my end users That aside for now here's my latest conundrum:

On this theme I want to do the following..
1.Identify all users with AS associated devices now
2.Identify of these who have not sync'd in the last 3 months
3.Output those that are active with association to file
4.Disable AS across all users
5.re-enable AS for users previously using it and meeting 3 month criteria using outputted file


Step 1. Get-Mailbox -ResultSize Unlimited | ForEach {Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics -Mailbox:$_.Identity} | ft Identity, LastSuccessSync >c:\allowed.csv
Step 2. As above file is filtered in Excel by date and All those within 3 months are retained.
Step 3. Save above as csv file for use in step 5 All that will be in here is a single list with usernames.
Step 4. Set-CASMailbox -Identity "Joe Blo" -ActiveSyncEnabled $false
Step 5. Re-Enable Using allowed.csv

I need help building up in particular step 5.

Should I use an Import-csv and or a varible ($users = c:\allowed.csv)to call the csv list, maybe something else?

Help with the syntax of the commands would be helpful. I am not great with PS so would really appreciate spelling out the steps.

The csv file would be a single username column.
