need assistance with a powershell script.

Posted on 2016-07-22
Last Modified: 2016-10-22
hello, we have this script that works perfect on exchange 2010 to add additional SMTP alias, however this does not work on exchange 2007.

can someone modify this so it will work on 2007?

thanks in advance:

Import-Csv alias-add-var-gen1.csv | % {
$user = Get-Mailbox $_.SMTP 
$user.emailAddresses += $_.newsmtp
Set-Mailbox $user -emailAddresses $user.emailAddresses

Except that + sign in line 3 it looks ok, have no exchange2007 anymore to check but can imagine you differ in PS versions, maybe update powershell on the 2007 box.
(PS C:\> $PSVersionTable.PSVersion)

I cannot detect an issue either, so we need the error message, as requested by Learnctx.
However, I would compress the script slightly:
Import-Csv alias-add-var-gen1.csv | % {
  Get-Mailbox $_.SMTP | Set-Mailbox -emailAddresses @($user.emailAddresses)+$_.newsmtp
