PowerShell : Adding users to Distribution Group

This will allow you to add in batch users to a distribution list, then first connect to the correct environment as below:

If you are doing this Exchange on-premises then you need this:

$Session = New-PSSession -ConfigurationName Microsoft.Exchange -ConnectionUri http://EX01-2016.exoip.local/PowerShell/ -Authentication Kerberos -Credential $UserCredential

Import-PSSession $Session -DisableNameChecking -AllowClobber

If you are doing this in Exchange Online ensure you run this before the script:

Connect-Exchange Online

Then you need to customise the items in bold for your environment:

Import-CSV <FilePath> | foreach { 
Write-Progress -Activity "Adding $UPN to group… " 
 Add-DistributionGroupMember –Identity <GroupUPN> -Member $UPN 
 Write-Host $UPN Successfully added -ForegroundColor Green 
 Write-Host $UPN - Error occurred –ForegroundColor Red 

The CSV file will need to be in the format as below:

Then your users will be colour coded on the status of the import, green is added and red is failed.....
