Need to add a proxy address for all members of an OU RRS feed

  • Question

  • So here is the scenario, we are an educational institution migrating to Microsoft Online Services. At present our student population have AD accounts, their UPN and sAMAccountName use the same user ID. They do not have Exchange email, their email is hosted by Google. 

    As part of the migration we are bringing the student email in house but want to use a subdomain as their email suffix but we are not permitted to expose their ID which leaves me with a problem. If I use any of the third party tools to add a proxy address it uses their sAMAccountName. 

    So, my question is, how can I add a proxy address to each of the student accounts (all in one OU)? I have a csv file with their current email prefixes so I can import this into a script to create the new proxy SMTP address but no matter what I try it does not update the account, no proxy address is created. The new email domain is listed within AD and I can manually select it in the UPN attribute.
