@{‘-’=(.. means remove.. Are you trying to remove the email address? Also please post the error.

The command you are running is going to try and remove an email address of
Username@contoso.com from each user.  I thought you wanted to ADD?

Your Set-Mailbox command should be...

Set-Mailbox -identity $_ -EmailAddresses @{Add="$($_.Alias@YourDomain.com")

Replacing YourDomain.com with your new domain name


But it is FAR easier to just add a new policy or update your existing.

BTB, If you want to replace @some.com email address with @contoso.com then you can try the following code..
$mbx = Get-Mailbox -Resultsize Unlimited
$mbx | %{Set-Mailbox -Identity $_ -EmailAddresses @{Add=($_.Alias+'@contoso.com');Remove=($_.Alias+'@some.com')} -EmailAddressPolicyEnabled:$False}

Open in new window

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I want to keep both domains and majority of the users are EAP disabled.
i.e. one user will have 2 email address user@olddomain.com and user@newdomain.com
I want to apply this on all users or atleast on EAP disabled users

Replace *Mailbox commands with *DistributionGroup, I didn't test it but it should work..
$mbx = Get-DistributionGroup -Resultsize Unlimited
$mbx | %{Set-DistributionGroup -Identity $_ -EmailAddresses @{Add=($_.Alias+'@contoso.com')}}
