Hi Exchange Powershell expert,

Exchange 2010

I am trying to configure OOO to notify  of change of addresses for a group of users.

test1.csv contains two columns:
 abcalias, defalias
      tpeter , tom.peter

Here is the PS script I am using :

Import-Csv c:\test1.csv | % {Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration $_.abcalias -AutoReplyState enabled -InternalMessage "Please note: my email address has changed from$_.abcalias@abc.com to $_.defalias@def.com" -ExternalMessage "Please note: my email address has changed from $_.abcalias@abc.com to $_.defalias@def.com"}

Open in new window


Please note: my email address has changed from@{abcalias=tpeter; defalias=tom.peter}.abcalias@abc.com to @{abcalias=tpeter; deflias=tom.peter}.defalias@def.com

The result I want is
Please note: my email address has changed from tpeter@abc.com to tom.peter@def.com

I am not using the transport rule because it involves only certain number of users.

Any help appreciated.

I would add @domain.com within the csv file itself or you need to add two lines to the code.

Import-Csv c:\test1.csv | % {[string]$old=$_.abcalias+"@abc.com";[string]$new=$_.defalias+"@def.com";Set-MailboxAutoReplyConfiguration $_.abcalias -AutoReplyState enabled -InternalMessage "Please note: my email address has changed from $old to $new" -ExternalMessage "Please note: my email address has changed from $old to $new"}
