Exporting email addresses into .CSV of around 20 mailboxes?

Posted on 2016-07-27

Hi guys,

If we wanted to export the email addresses of lets say around 20 mailboxes into a .CSV, how would we do that in Exchange 2010 shell?

For example, if we have a list of the name of the mailboxes like the below, then what would be the best way to export their email addresses without having to do each one individually?


Thanks a lot

If you have the list of users/mailboxes in a list.   Name the list mailboxes.txt  Your exchange shell command will be

 Get-Content "c:\filepath\mailboxes.txt" | Get-Mailbox | Ft SamAccountName, EmailAddress | out-file "c:\temp\emailaddresses.csv"

First, create a CSV file with a list of the users you want to output email addresses for.  I called the file "MailboxList.csv".  The CSV must have a header and look similar to this...


Next run these two commands...

The first will import the information using "MailboxList.csv" into an array.

$MyAddresses = Import-Csv "C:\MailboxList.csv" | ForEach-Object { Get-Recipient -Identity $_.Mailboxes | select Name, Alias, PrimarySmtpAddress }

The second will use the array to output the name, alias and primary email address into a CSV file for each of the users you provided in "MailboxList.csv".

$MyAddresses | Export-Csv "C:\MyEmailAddresses.csv" -NoTypeInformation

Hope this helps.
