This topic explains how to use the Exchange Management Shell to view the members of an address list.

In Microsoft Exchange Server 2007, you can view the members of an address list by using the Edit Address List wizard or New Address List wizard in the Exchange Management Console. However, if you used the Exchange Management Shell to create the address list, you cannot use the Exchange Management Console to view the members of the list. Instead, you must use the Get-Recipient cmdlet in the Exchange Management Shell. For more information about how to view the members of an address list by using the Exchange Management Console, see How to Edit an Address List.

Before You Begin

To perform this procedure, the account you use must be delegated the following:

  • Exchange View-Only Administrator role

For more information about permissions, delegating roles, and the rights that are required to administer Exchange 2007, see Permission Considerations.


To use the Exchange Management Shell to view the members of an address list

  1. To find the distinguished name (DN) of an address list named Humongous Insurance, run the following command:

    Copy Code
    Get-AddressList -Identity "Humongous Insurance" | fl DistinguishedName
  2. To view the members of the Humongous Insurance address list by using the DN, run the following command:

    Copy Code
    Get-Recipient -Filter {AddressListMembership -eq 'CN=Humongous Insurance,CN=All Address Lists,CN=Address Lists Container,CN=First Organization,CN=Microsoft Exchange,CN=Services,CN=Configuration,DC=QWCTAC-dom,DC=extest,DC=CONTOSO,DC=com'}
