I am doing AD /Exchange clean up and was wondering if anyone have a way of finding objects that have a certain value in the showinaddressbook value. It would be difficult to do this by manually going in with ADSIEDIT. Is there a powershell command perhaps that can find different names in the showinaddressbook value. For example
