I was looking for a way with powershell to find all the lists in my sharepoint 2007 farm that had email enabled document libraries as well as the email address associated with them. Didn’t take long to find a script for this on technet http://social.technet.microsoft.com/Forums/da-DK/sharepointgeneral/thread/457387e3-05af-425c-9de4-5aa15d673a19 , but that version used the Get-SPWebApplication cmdlet which does not work with SP2007. So I replaced it with the sp2007 equivilent

That fixed the issue for me. Here’s the full code below. It kicks out the report into a csv file that you can import into your favorite csv editor, and make the report pretty.


#Load SharePoint Asssemblies
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load(“Microsoft.SharePoint, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c”)
[System.Reflection.Assembly]::Load(“Microsoft.SharePoint.Portal, Version=, Culture=neutral, PublicKeyToken=71e9bce111e9429c”)

$SPwebapp = [Microsoft.SharePoint.Administration.SPWebApplication]::Lookup(“http://myspfarm”)

#create a CSV file
“E-Mail,List,Site” > “EMail-Enabled.txt” #Write the Headers in to a text file

foreach ($SPsite in $SPwebApp.Sites)  # get the collection of site collections
foreach($SPweb in $SPsite.AllWebs)  # get the collection of sub sites
foreach ($SPList list in $SPweb.Lists)
if ( ($splist.CanReceiveEmail) -and ($SPlist.EmailAlias) )
# WRITE-HOST “E-Mail -” $SPList.EmailAlias “is configured for the list “$SPlist.Title “in “$SPweb.Url
$SPList.EmailAlias + “,” + $SPlist.Title +”,” + $SPweb.Url >> EMail-Enabled.txt  #append the data


thanks http://jshidell.com/ for that pointer​
