import-csv | % {Set-mailcontact $_.identity -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true}

Open in new window


$_.identity assumes the mailbox name is stored in your csv as a column named identity, replace it with the correct value from your csv

Use the following powershell script below...
$Users = import-csv "c:\yourcsvhere.csv"
foreach ($user in $Users) {
$user.alias
      Get-Mailbox -Identity $user.alias | set-mailbox -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true
}

Open in new window


Your CSV needs to have the column heading ALIAS. Then having all of the alias or samaccountname underneath.
