I use this command :

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize "unlimited" -Filter 'customattribute2 -eq "00" -and customattribute1 -eq "Test"' | Set-Mailbox -CustomAttribute2 "01"

And it'work well. But, I want to add "City" in my request:

Get-Mailbox -ResultSize "unlimited" -Filter 'customattribute2 -eq "01" -and customattribute1 -eq "Test" -and city -eq "Quebec"' | Set-Mailbox -CustomAttribute2 "00"

But I have a error:
Get-Mailbox : Cannot bind parameter 'Filter' to the target. Exception setting "Filter": ""city" is not a recognized filterable property.

What is the command powershell if I want add th city?

I do not think "City" is a mailbox attribute, is it part of the ADUSER.
Unless it has been set as a custom attribute?

Hi dgswin,

The cmdlet "Get-Mailbox" does not accept the property "City" for the -Filter parameter. The following cmdlets accepts the property "City"

Get-Contact
Get-Recipient
Get-User

A sample script that can be edited to do this is here:

It gets the size of mailboxes and certain attributes from the AD, just edit out the ones you do not want.
