I have following script to export primary smtp addresses of a particular distribution list:

$HelloMailboxes = "HelloMailboxes"
$PathExportMailboxes = "C:\upload\HelloMailboxes.csv"


Get-DistributionGroupMember $HelloMailboxes  | Select PrimarySmtpAddress | Export-Csv $PathExportMailboxes -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window


The output of the command is:
"PrimarySmtpAddress"
"mary@haylock.ch"
"marie@haylock.ch"
"leandro@haylock.ch"
"buchhaltung@haylock.ch"
"bibliothek@haylock.ch"

Open in new window


I would like to have following output (without header and " characters):
mary@haylock.ch
marie@haylock.ch
leandro@haylock.ch
buchhaltung@haylock.ch
bibliothek@haylock.ch

This can be done from ADUC , where as you can create a query to get all the users and then from add and remove coloumn , you can add email address and then export the list to a csv file.

If you have the Saved query folder in teh Active Directory Users and computers Snap-in then you can do this:

1. Right-Click the folder and select New query
2. Give it a descriptive name
3. Click Define Query
4. From the drop down list select Custom Search
5. Clcik Advanced tab
6. Paste in the following:

(&(objectCategory=user)(memberOf=cn=Domain Admins,cn=users,dc=YourDomain,dc=local))

You will need to change the cn=..... part to suite your groups distinguished name.

then once you save this and get a list you can:
7. Right-click on your query
8. Select Export List (not Export Query definition as this just creates a backup of the query)
9. Select from the save as type:
   Text (Comma Delimited) (*.csv)
Which of course, opens in Excel as it is.

Cheers

Herein Attached a Script for o make it easier for you.

What does the script exactly do?

    1- Queries Active Directory for Contacts & Groups
    2- Lists their email addresses
    3- Queries Users
    4- Lists enabled users’ email addresses
    5- Lists disabled users’ email addresses separately (was required for a certain project I did a long time back)
    6- Outputs to command line and also to a text file – c:\proxyaddresses.txt
    - X.400 addresses are ignored
