"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

You can do it with the Set-ADUser cmdlet. E.g.:

Set-ADUser test1 -Add @{proxyAddresses="X500:/o=<org name>/ou=<site name>/cn=Recipients/cn=test1"}

Open in new window

Following up on Jeremy's script.  If you need it to read from a .csv file try this:

Create a .csv file with a column labelled Username and another labelled X500.  Save the user details in this .csv file on the DC.  Run this script:

Import-Module activedirectory

$users = Import-Csv users.csv

$users | ForEach-Object {
    Set-ADUser $users.username -Add {proxyAddresses=$users.x500 -WhatIf}
}

Open in new window


I don't have a sandbox to work with at the moment so I can't test it.  I appended everything with a -WhatIf so it won't change anything but will let you know of any errors it might contain.
