Hello,

I have a txt file which contains list of email address of mailboxes.  

traffic@xyz.com
sales@xyz.com
hr@xyz.com
.....

I need to run a PS command to read this text file and convert the mailboxes into shared mailboxes.

I am trying this command but it does not work:

get-content "c:\mailbox.txt" | set-mailbox $_ -Type Shared

If someone knows how to fix it, please advise.

Thanks.
