Globally applying an Active Directory attribute using a PowerShell script

Basssque asked
Last Modified: 2017-03-27
I can use the script below to apply an email address to a list of accounts using a csv list.  Can anyone help me change this script so it applies the matching username associated with each active directory account @domain.com  (smithj@domain.com) to all active directory accounts where the attribute is currently null?  Thanks!

Import-Csv -path C:\test.csv | ForEach-Object { $user = $_.sAMAccountName
	$department = $_.mail
	Get-Aduser -filter { sAMAccountName -eq $user } | set-ADuser -department $mail
