In the Script posted below i marked the steps where i need help e.g. ### Question No. 1###

1. What is the best way to write only the USERIDs of the DB "*WEB*" to an
external CSV at this step?

2. Is there a way to exclude the User which are stored in Database (*WEB*) from the action should taken below, after identify them and write to an external file
or must be  this user explicitly exclude from any action before it should taken?

for example: ($_.Version -eq "MSXC2010" -and $_.action -eq "New" -and $user_db -notlike "*WEB*")

Import-Module ActiveDirectory 
ForEach ($User in  Import-Csv "c:\import.csv"){ #$user}
{$_.Version -eq "MSXC2010" -and $_.aktion -eq "new"} {

$user_dept = (Get-ADUser -identity $user.UserID).department
$user_db = (Get-Mailbox -Identity $user.userid).Database
if($user_db -notlike "*WEB*" -and $user_dept -like "EMC") {
$db = "DBEMC0$("{0:00}" -f (1..43 | Get-random))"
Enable-Mailbox -Identity $user.UserId $DB  #here should enable all user in department EMC to Database DBEMC0 - DBEMC043

### Question No. 1 ####
}elseif ($user_db -like "*WEB*" | Out-File "c:\Temp\webUser.csv") {   #here write userids database web to a file

### Question No. 2 ####
		    }elseif ($user_dep -notlike "*EMC*" -and $user_db -notlike "*WEB*") {  # all user not department EMC and not Database WEB should be enable here
            Enable-Mailbox -Identity $user.UserId

                  else { 

                  $mbox = Get-Mailbox -Identity $User.userid
                  $mbox.EmailAddresses = $user.userid + ""
