Use the Get-AddressList cmdlet to view all attributes of an address list.

Get-AddressList [-Identity <AddressListIdParameter>] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>]

Get-AddressList -Container <AddressListIdParameter> [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>]

Parameter Required Type Description




The Container parameter specifies the identity of the parent address list of the address list or lists that you want to view. If no parent address list is specified, the command gets all address lists under the root All Address Lists.




The DomainController parameter specifies the fully qualified domain name (FQDN) of the domain controller that retrieves data from Active Directory.




The Identity parameter specifies the GUID, distinguished name (DN), or address list name that represents a specific address list. You can also include the path using the format Path\AddressListName.

You can omit the parameter label so that only the address list name or GUID is supplied.




The Organization parameter is reserved for internal Microsoft use.

You can pipe the output from the Get-AddressList cmdlet to the Remove-AddressList, Set-AddressList, Update-Addresslist, and Move-AddressList cmdlets instead of using the Identity parameter with each of those cmdlets.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Address lists" entry in the Mailbox Permissions topic.

Error Description



Exceptions Description



This example gets the attributes of all the address lists under the All Address Lists container.


This example gets the attributes of the address list building4, located under the All Users\Sales\ address list, using the domain controller DomainController01.

Get-AddressList -Identity "All Users\Sales\building4" -DomainController DomainController01
