HI Experts,

I have a CSV file of about 100 email addresses.  

1- I need to get the samaccountname (logon ID) from each of these email addresses in the file.  

2 - Than add these samaccountnames (logon ID) to a AD distribution group.

Is there a nice powershell script that can accomplish this?  

Thanks
