Hi,

I need assistance to add a filter to the following powershell script, to allow me to test only a few email addresses, before running it on our entire directory.   We can use "where the mailbox name contains "john"

$Mailboxes = get-mailbox -resultsize "unlimited"
foreach ($Mailbox in $Mailboxes) {
Set-Mailbox -Identity $Mailbox -CustomAttribute1 $Mailbox.Office
}

Open in new window

Use the following command...
$Mailboxes = get-mailbox -resultsize "unlimited" -filter {name -like "john*"}
foreach ($Mailbox in $Mailboxes) {
Set-Mailbox -Identity $Mailbox -CustomAttribute1 $Mailbox.Office
}

Open in new window
