Exchange 2016 - Bulk create mailbox from csv


does anyone have an example of both  .csv and PS command, to bulk import users?
I know that I can do it via Get-User -OrganizationalUnit " OU" | Enable-Mailbox, but not all users in each OU should get mailbox, so it's a bit of a problem.

That will do for you

Add-PSSnapin *Exchange*
Import-Csv "C:\Scripts\MailboxUsers.csv" | ForEach-Object {
New-Mailbox -UserPrincipalName $_.'userPrincipalName' -Alias $_.'alias' -Database $_.'database' -Name $_.'name' –OrganizationalUnit $_.'ParentOU' -Password (ConvertTo-SecureString 'MyPassword123' -AsPlainText -Force) -FirstName $_.'firstName' -LastName $_.'lastName' -DisplayName $_.'displayName' -ResetPasswordOnNextLogon $True }

new-mailbox is used to create both AD account and mailbox.

Anyway, found the solution.
1. create .csv with field Identity, and below it list of users in username format
2. run command: Import-Csv .\Users.csv | foreach {Get-user -Identity $_.Alias | Enable-Mailbox}

Thank you for help.
