Powershell Output to Variable Help

Trying to pull 2 outputs from Powershell into variables that I can use in the subject and body of an email sent with the send-mailmessage command.

The first variable I need the ForwardingAddress in the Get-Mailbox command.  I can get this output captured to a variable but it includes the formatting in addition to the name of the distribution group set as the forwarding address.  I need just the distribution group name in the variable.

I have been using $forwardingaddress = get-mailbox -identity 'me@me.com' | select ForwardingAddress but it returns the following
Sales Disty

I need a way to pull just "Sales Disty" into the variable $forwardingaddress.

I then need to take this variable and use it to pull the members of the distribution group and save them as a variable.  This variable needs to be a full list of all members.

Both variables need to be able to be used in the Subject (Disty Name) and the Body (Members of Disty) with the send-mailmessage command.

Can someone help me with the coding on this one?

you could use -expandproperty or in another variable use $new-variable = $forwardindaddress.forwardingaddress

It's simple just run this:

$forwardingaddress = get-mailbox -identity 'me@me.com' | select -ExpandProperty ForwardingAddress
