Hey guys thanks for all your help in the past. I am just trying to figure out what am I doing here wrong as I am trying to add a bunch of primarysmtpaddresses for users and this is erroring out on the command line.


Import-Csv c:\temp\importfile.csv  | Foreach-Object {Set-Mailbox $_.username -primarysmtpaddress @{Add='$_primarysmtpaddress'}


username   primarysmtpaddress
username   username@contoso.local
username1  username1@contoso.local
username2  username2@contoso.local
username3  username3@contoso.local

Try by removing the single quotes, it won’t expand the variable.. Then, '.' (dot) is missing in '$_primarysmtpaddress'.

Since you are trying to change the primarysmtpaddress.. try the following..
Import-Csv c:\temp\importfile.csv  | Foreach-Object {Set-Mailbox $_.username -PrimarySmtpAddress $_.primarysmtpaddress -EmailAddressPolicyEnabled $false}

oh I see and I noticed that you did not need to use the @{add} array thanks.

@{add="email@email.com"}  is used with parameter -EmailAddresses to add additional email addresses.
