Exchange 2007 primary addresses based on custom attribute RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I'm trying to export Exchange mailboxes that have a custom attribute 13 of "Spain" and "Ireland".  I need to then add a new SMTP address for them import and make it there primary, is this possible?

    I looked at Get-Mailbox | select PrimarySmtpAddress | Export-CSV C:\temp\allmailboxes.csv but it does all and I can't see away of adding a new column and apply their new SMTP address and make it their primary?

    I was hoping I could use some of your experiences.

    Thanks

  • If your intention is to simply create a different SMTP address and make it their primary SMTP address, why not consider using a E-Mail Address Policy?

    If the new SMTP address can be generated using the normal variables (%m, %g, %s, etc.) then all you'd have to do is make the contents of CA13 the discriminator and place the new policy (or policies) ahead of the ones you have now.

    new-emailaddresspolicy .... -ConditionalCustomAttribute13 'Spain' . . .

    new-emailaddresspolicy .... -ConditionalCustomAttribute13 'Ireland' . . .

    Or just use the GUI to create the policy if it's only a simple set of conditions.

  • Hi,

    We can refer to Rich Matheisen’s suggestion. E-mail address policies can generate the primary and secondary e-mail addresses for your recipients (which include users, contacts, and groups) so they can receive and send e-mail. We can create new E-Mail Address Policies for your Exchange mailboxes that have a custom attribute 13 of "Spain" and "Ireland" respectively.

    Here are some examples about custom SMTP E-mail Address Policy below:
