Experts,

I'm using Exchange 2010 with Outlook 2010.

I use distribution lists with mail contacts to send to our membership.  I'm looking to clean up my Exchange mail contacts and I know that if they aren't attached to any DL's after I've created this year's lists, that they can be purged.  
I'm trying to create a list filtering on addresslistmembership, assuming if the value is zero, I'll get my results.  I'll then export it to csv, check it then run a purge based on an edited CSV.
So here's what I tried:
Get-contact | where {$.addresslistmembership –eq 0}
I get nothing with this...

However, if I reverse it:
Get-contact | where {$.addresslistmembership –ne 0}

I get a list of contacts that are attached to DL's.  

Not sure what I'm doing wrong or how best to approach this and I'm looking for suggestions.

Thanks!

You are looking for DL membership using GAL membership property and the syntax is not correct. The best or the easiest I could find is to get all mail contacts with their Name and Memberof property into a csv file and filter  the contacts with null value.

Import-Module ActiveDirectory
Get-MailContact | %{Get-ADObject $_.GUID -Properties Memberof | Select Name,Memberof >> contacts.csv}
