Importing bulk commands into Exchange 2010 Powershell

We currently have a list of email accounts (john.doe@aaa.com) along with corresponding Mail Contacts for a forwarding address (john.doe@bbb.com)

Using the command

set-mailbox -identity John.Doe -ForwardingAddress "John.Doe@bbb.com" -DeliverToMailAndForward $false

When looking at the mailflow settings, it all appears fine and works.

We have 200+ of these to do and would like to know the best way to do this

I have tried to use the above command and have 200+ individual lines of the code on a csv file and then tried to import using Import-CSV c:\mail.csv

When this runs, it just displays the contents of the CSV file and doesn't seem to run the command.

you would need some kind of foreach loop in there to process through

for example

$importedusers = Import-csv "C:\users.csv"

foreach ($importeduser in $importedusers)
               {set-mailbox -identity $importeduser.usersname -ForwardingAddress $importeduser.forwardadd -DeliverToMailAndForward $false}

In you CSV file you would need column names of username and forwardadd
