PowerShell Updates to Retrieve Distribution Groups, Update User Addresses, and MoreMicrosoft Online Services Migration Tools version 1.0.1453.123 now includes two new cmdlets and an update to Get-MSOnlineUser.

"The new Get-MSOnlineDistributionGroup cmdlet allows admins to retrieve properties of distribution groups through PowerShell, and a user's UPN, primary SMTP address, and SIP address can now be managed using the Update-MSOnlineUserAddresses cmdlet," Microsoft stated.

"You can use the MOSMT to forward copies of your Exchange Server mail to your Exchange Online mailboxes. You can also use the Migration Tools to copy content from your Exchange Server, POP3, or IMAP4 e-mail server mailboxes to your Exchange Online mailboxes. This product intended for use with MOS only," explains Microsoft.

  1. Get-MSOnlineUser cmdlet retrieves the properties of a specified user in Microsoft Online Services.
  2. Get-MSOnlineDistributionGroup cmdlet retrieves the properties of a specified distribution group.
  3. Update-MSOnlineUserAddresses cmdlet can be used to update a user's primary SMTP address and SIP address to match their existing UPN or a new UPN. For mailbox users, if an existing SMTP address matches the UPN, Update-MSOnlineUserAddresses will set it as the primary SMTP. Otherwise, the cmdlet will add a new SMTP address as the primary email address. Note that "this cmdlet doesn't remove or replace a user's existing SMTP addresses. For users with an existing SIP address, Update-MSOnlineUserAddresses will update the SIP address to match the UPN," said Microsoft.

You can download the Microsoft Online Services Migration Tools 32-bit or 64-bit version from the Microsoft Download Center.
