powershell code to manipulate public folders and user mailbox

powershell code to manipulate public folders and user mailbox


We have exchange 2010. And we also use a public contacts folder called company-directory. This folder always has our up to date directory of users(some have smart phones + email, other just a flip phone, other just a landline). Any who users are encourage to copy the folder to their outlook contacts folders so their smartphone has the latest.

I am trying to see if I can automate this with powershell or any other tool. Essentially the algorithm would be
copy public folder company-directory from exchange
paste it in users a, b, c, contacts folder. I am trying to do this from the exchange side; meaning programmatically without user interference or without having outlook open.

Is this possible? I googled and didn't find a helpful response to this questions. I am hoping some one can point me in the right direction.

Thank you,
