Filter Addresslist by OU?

All -

I am currently running this powershell to create an addresslist that searches for any contacts that ends with "". The problem is I want to narrow this down so it does not search the entire domain, but rather focus on 1 OU. Is this possible with the "new-addresslist" command? I am not sure how to do this. I have attempted to use "recipientcontainer" but from what I'm reading, you can't use that when you are using "recipientfilter".

The current command I have is: (which does not narrow to the specific OU)
new-addresslist -name "Blah Contacts" -recipientfilter {(recipienttype -eq 'MailContact') -and (ExternalEmailAddress -like "*")}

OU (organizationalUnit) is not a filterable property.. So you cannot create an address list with users from an OU..You can use a CustomAttribute, memberOf or any other filterable attribute.


PS : If you are using CustomAttribute or memberOf to create the addresslist,then you need to schedule another script to update the attribute (CustomAttribute or memberOf.) for all users in that OU.
