Get-Recipient returns no results in Office 365

7 Dec 2015 by emma.robinson

If you’re using Office 365 a lot you may have come across an issue where running the Get-Recipient cmdlet returns no results.

PS C:\> Get-Recipient
PS C:\>

Microsoft are aware of the issue and it seems to be due to a bug in Exchange Online.
To work around this issue – simply append an Asterix to the end of the cmdlet like this:

PS C:\> Get-Recipient *
Name RecipientType
