hello, can someone provide a way that we can feed this script with an input.csv

here is the logic:

New-AddressRewriteEntry -Name "<Descriptive Name>" -InternalAddress <internal email address> -ExternalAddress <external email address> [-OutboundOnly <$true | $false>]

Open in new window


i have a CSV with:
column 1 = internal email address
column 2 = external email address

need a way to define a variable so the script can reference the input CSV file and add these re-write entries for a list of users on the spreadsheet.

thanks in advance
