one way is to install
Active Directory Management Gateway Service or the Quest Powershell Tools
    64-bit version: Quest ActiveRolesManagementShellforActiveDirectoryx64 151.zip
    32-bit version: Quest ActiveRolesManagementShellforActiveDirectoryx86 151.zip

Powershell without the need for external tools:
Function Get-ADSIUser {
[CmdletBinding()]
Param(
	[string]$SamAccountName = '*',
	[string[]]$AttributeList = @()
)
	If ($AttributeList.Count -eq 0) {
		$AttributeList = @(
			'createTimeStamp'
			'displayName'
			'distinguishedName'
			'givenName'
			'name'
			'sAMAccountName'
			'sn'
			'userPrincipalName'
		)
	}
	Try {
		$RootDSE = [ADSI]'LDAP://RootDSE'
		$ADODBConnection = New-Object -ComObject 'ADODB.Connection'
		$ADODBConnection.Provider = 'ADsDSOObject'
		$ADODBConnection.Open('Active Directory Provider')
		$ADODBCommand = New-Object -ComObject 'ADODB.Command'
		$ADODBCommand.ActiveConnection = $ADODBConnection
		$BaseDN = "LDAP://$($RootDSE.defaultNamingContext)"
		$Filter = "(&(objectCategory=person)(objectClass=user)(samaccountname=$($SamAccountName)))"
		$ADODBCommand.CommandText = "<" + $BaseDN + ">;" + $Filter + ";" + ($AttributeList -Join ",") + ";subtree"
		$ADODBCommand.Properties.Item('Page Size').Value = 1000
		$ADODBCommand.Properties.Item('Size Limit').Value = 10000
		$ADODBCommand.Properties.Item('Timeout').Value = 60
		$ADODBCommand.Properties.Item('Cache Results').Value = $False
		$RecordSet = $ADODBCommand.Execute()
		If ($RecordSet.EOF) {
			"User '$($SamAccountName)' not found!" | Write-Warning
		} Else {
			Do {
				$ADUser = '' | Select-Object -Property $AttributeList
				ForEach ($Attribute In $AttributeList) {
					$ADUser.$Attribute = $RecordSet.Fields.Item($Attribute).Value
				}
				$ADUser
				$RecordSet.MoveNext()
			} Until ($RecordSet.EOF)
		}
	} Catch {
		Throw $_
	} Finally {
		If ($RecordSet) {$RecordSet.Close()}
		If ($ADODBCommand) {[Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal]::FinalReleaseComObject($ADODBCommand) | Out-Null}
		If ($ADODBConnection) {
			$ADODBConnection.Close()
			[Runtime.InteropServices.Marshal]::FinalReleaseComObject($ADODBConnection) | Out-Null
		}
	}
}

Get-ADSIUser | Select-Object samAccountName, displayName, givenName, sn, createTimeStamp | Sort-Object samAccountName | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path C:\users_list.csv

Take a look at the below.

https://www.experts-exchange.com/questions/28958687/Need-help-with-an-PowerShell-command-to-extract-user-attributes.html

You don't have to run it on the server.  It can be run from any PC joined to the domain.

Sorry, forgot the mail.
Just add a new line 13 with 'mail' to the attributes retrieved.
Then in the last line, add the property to Select-Object, for example like this:
Get-ADSIUser | Select-Object samAccountName, displayName, givenName, sn, mail | Export-Csv -NoTypeInformation -Path C:\users_list.csv

Open in new window
