How to add a contact to multiple users

This article will show how to add a contact to multiple users with an automation script.


zmprov -l gaa > /tmp/users; for i in `cat /tmp/users`; do zmmailbox -z -m $i cct email "" firstName "contact" lastName "3"; done

The command above first creates a list of all users, and then creates the account "contact3" to all of them. If you like to add it to a group of users, you need to specify them manually, or grep for a specific domain. Later you place the first and second name for the contact.
