Can you help me with this if statement. It should check to see if the ad users email address is equal to the email address imported from the csv.

Import-Csv "C:\Scripts\accounts\AmigosList.csv" | ForEach-Object {
$SID = $_.STD_ID_LOCAL
$User1 = Get-Aduser -Filter "SamAccountName -eq $SID" -Property SamAccountName
       
            if($User1.EmailAddress -eq $_.Email1){
                write-host "Email is already correct"
                }
            else{
                write-host "fix the email"
               }
}

Your If statement should work as is if you add "emailAddress" to the -Property parameter of your Get-ADUser command.

If statement should work, probably need to correct the filter syntax for Get-Aduser and add missing email property..
$User1 = Get-Aduser -Filter {SamAccountName -eq $SID} -pr *

Open in new window

or
$User1 = Get-Aduser -Filter 'SamAccountName -eq $SID' -pr *

Open in new window

Can't test it at the moment, but the script below should work.
* Since you have the samAccountName anyway, there's no need for a filter, -Identity is just fine.
* You don't need to specify samAccountName as property, since it's a default property.
* In your own interest, don't use "$SID" for this - it usually means the user's Security Identifier.
* "EmailAddress" is not part of the default set, so you need to specify it in Get-ADUser.
* You won't know for which user the email address is correct or not ...
Import-Csv "C:\Scripts\accounts\AmigosList.csv" | ForEach-Object {
	"Processing $($_.STD_ID_LOCAL) ... "  | Write-Host -ForegroundColor White -NoNewline
	If ($ADUser = Get-Aduser -Identity $_.STD_ID_LOCAL -Property EmailAddress -ErrorAction SilentlyContinue) {
		If ($ADUser.EmailAddress -eq $_.Email1) {
			"email is already correct." | Write-Host -ForegroundColor Green
		} Else {
			"email needs to be fixed." | Write-Host -ForegroundColor Yellow
		}
	} Else {
		"user not found." | Write-Host -ForegroundColor Red
	}
}
