Use the Shell to move an address list

This example uses the address list's GUID to move the address list to the Building 4 container, which is located in the All Users\Sales container.

Copy Code
Move-AddressList -Identity c3fffd8e-026b-41b9-88c4-8c21697ac8ac -Target "\All Users\Sales\Building4"

Type Y to confirm that you want to move this address list, and then press ENTER.

For detailed syntax and parameter information, see Move-AddressList.
