Powershell script to import a safe sender list in the junk email folder [safe senders tab] in Outlook

Hello Experts,

A week ago a opened a similar post with the MS team to fix a GPO issue, however this was never resolved. I have decided instead of using a GPO to import a safe sender list in the junk's email folders, we believe that a power shell script might be a better option for us.


Our issue

When you start Outlook and examine the Safe Senders list in the Junk E-mail Options dialog box, you see that the Safe Senders list has not been updated after you configured GPO to append safe sender list correctly. This used to work until last week. From an Exchange and AD point of view, nothing has changed lately


The request:

A power shell script that imports the safe sender list from a txt file located on a shared folder or the Sysvol in the junk email options dialog box [safe senders]. This request should be applicable to Outlook 2010 and 2013.

Our environment

Multiple DCs running Windows 20008 R2 and 2012 R2.

Exchange 2010 SP3, 2 CAS/HUB one for each datacenter, and 2 MBX servers in a DAG, one for each location or datacenter.

Clients run Windows 7 and office 2010/2013


The exiting GPO that is supposed to import the safe sender list stopped working few weeks ago, multiple troubleshooting attempts with no luck.


Can anybody help me to write the script?

Since this script will affect all internal users, can you please provide 2 versions of the proposed script, one applicable for an specific users and the other one applicable to everyone under a Windows 2008 R2 domain?
