      Hi All,

      I am looking to hide all users that are disabled. I have found the following command and when run it gives all users including room mailboxes.

      I wanted to filter room mailboxes out of the results if possible and have all the disabled users hidden from the GAL.

      I am very new to Powershell and would also like to know for future reference how you put more than one filter into a command.

      Get-Mailbox -resultsize unlimited | where {$_.ExchangeUserAccountControl -eq ‘AccountDisabled’} | Set-Mailbox -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true

      Thanks in advance.

      get-mailbox -ResultSize unlimited -filter {RecipientTypeDetails -eq ‘UserMailbox’}

      Another way:
      The IsResource property should be true for the room mailboxes and false for the user mailboxes. You can put multiple tests in your filter or where-object clauses. The normal precedence rules apply to put them in the proper order, but I like to use parentheses to make sure that the tests are explicit. Here’s an example:
      Get-Mailbox -resultsize unlimited -Filter {((ExchangeUserAccountControl -eq 'AccountDisabled') -and (IsResource -eq $false))} | Set-Mailbox -HiddenFromAddressListsEnabled $true
