So you have a list of usernames and you want to add an email address to each account and move the objects to a different OU?

Just trying to understand the question.

I ended up figuring it out

here is the code I used:

$TargetOU = "DC=mydomain,DC=com"
$IDs = Import-CSV users.csv | Select -ExpandProperty mail
Get-ADUser -filter * -Properties mail | Where { $IDs -contains $_.mail } | 
 Move-ADObject -TargetPath $TargetOU

Open in new window
