Hi I am running a script to add multiple users to a distribution group:

Get-Content 'C:\users.txt' | Add-DistributionGroupMember 'groupname'

What I would like is that if the user cannot be found or if the user is already a member of the group that the script will list the username and save it to a text file, in an easy to read way.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
