I know a free tool to do this. Try it

If you need a command line one, you can purchase the whole pack. I purchased it for Public folder migration.

You could try something like the following...
$List = get-content "c:\filename.txt"
ForEach ($user in $List) 

        New-MailboxExportRequest -Mailbox $user -ContentFilter {Attachment -like "*.*"} -FilePath "\\servername\share\Attachments.pst"
