Export manager email from AD

How can I export an end user's manager's email address from Active Directory?  Currently, if I query the manager field I get this:  CN=ManagerFName ManagerLName,OU=UserOU,DC=domain,DC=com

How can I convert that to the manager's email address instead?

Which tool are you using to query active directory?
Manish ParmarSr. Network AdministratorAuthor Commented:
Powershell for now

$(get-aduser [username] -Properties manager).manager|get-aduser -properties emailaddress|% {$_.emailaddress}

Open in new window

Where the first part gets the user... and puts the managers DN into the pipeline.  (You already have that part.)
Second part gets the managers object, and makes certain to include the emailaddress property.
The final part just returns the emailaddress.
