I think the easiest way to do this is to turn this into a report..


Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit <enter OU location without brackets> | Select DisplayName, ForwardingSmtpAddress | Export-CSV C:\Forwarding.csv

Open in new window


Open the document in Excel:

C:\Forwarding.csv (or you can simply open excel, but I like typing stuff out)

Open in new window


Click on the Insert tab, and then select "My table has headers". From there filter out the section that says "blank" and pow - there are the users who have a forwarding along with the destination in a nice simple report :)

Or you can just pull a report that only includes users who have a value for ForwardingSMTPAddress.

Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "OU=MyOU,DC=domain,DC=com" -Filter {ForwardingSmtpAddress -ne $null} | Select Name,ForwardingSmtpAddress | Export-CSV C:\ForwardingEnabled.csv -nti

Open in new window


If the first one doesn't work

Get-Mailbox -OrganizationalUnit "OU=MyOU,DC=domain,DC=com" -Filter {ForwardingSmtpAddress -ne "*"} | Select Name,ForwardingSmtpAddress | Export-CSV C:\ForwardingEnabled.csv -nti

Open in new window
