Hi we are having issues with our GAL because some of our user's mail does not equal to the SMTP primary address. Is there a script that I can use to extract name, sAMAccountName, mail and primarySMTP address to a csv or excel?

Const ForWriting = 2

'Domain to be processes
strSMTPDomain = "domain.com"
intSDLen = Len(strSMTPDomain)

'Path for the output file
filePath = "C:\" & strSMTPDomain & ".txt"

'Setup output file
Set objFSO = CreateObject("Scripting.FileSystemObject")
Set objTextFile = objFSO.OpenTextFile(filepath, ForWriting, True)

Which version of exchange you have?

If you are OK with PowerShell script then try this..

Get-QADUser -SizeLimit 0 | Select Name,PrimarySMTPAddress,Mail | Export-CSV c:\report.csv -NTI

Open in new window

The code require Quest AD shell (This is a free and very useful tool can be installed on any computer connected to your domain)

Or you can use ldifde, change "dc=Test,dc=com"test.com to your domain name in following command.
ldifde -f proxies.txt -d "dc=Test,dc=com" -l "Mail,proxyaddresses" -r "(proxyaddresses=smtp:*@test.com)"

@subsun - I get this error message after executing the powershell command. PLease advise. Thank you.

The term 'Get-QADUser' is not recognized as the name of a cmdlet, function, scr
ipt file, or operable program. Check the spelling of the name, or if a path was
 included, verify that the path is correct and try again.

There are many.. :-)

IMO, The PowerShell Help actually helps..

Help <Your command>

For example..
Help Get-QADUser -Full
Help Get-QADUser -Examples

You can also download ActiveRoles Management Shell for Active Directory - Administrator's Guide from above link which I provided..
