Mailbox size in Exchange 2007

57010 pts.
Microsoft Exchange 2007
I used the get-mailboxstatistics cmdlet, but it only gives me the number and whether the mailbox is over or under the store limit. How can I get the information available in the older ESMs such as mailbox SIZE, who last logged into that mailbox and when, and the number of sessions open on the server for that user?

Technochic, I haven’t tried this myself — but came across a pretty cool looking Powershell script by Glen Scales that you might be just what you’re looking for.

Here’s a link to the article:

Here’s an excerpt:
“I’ve put together a powershell script that creates a winform that allows you to select what server you want to report on. Then it will run the get-mailboxstatistics cmdlet to retrieve all mailbox sizes for all users on this server you select and populate a ListView with these values. An event is wired to the ListView rows so when you select a row in this ListView (eg a mailbox you want to know where the space is being use). Another function runs that then performs a FindFolder operation via Exchange Web Services on the selected user which will retrieve a list of every folder in the mailbox and the size of that folder. This data is used to populate a datatable which is then used to populate another list view object that will display the names and sizes of those folders in the mailbox.”

    Yes I saw that post, thanks. I was hoping there would be something simpler. I agree with the last comment on that blog. "It's absurd that Exchange doesn't let you get this information through a simple Console report. How is it that Exchange gets harder to manage and less reliable with each version?" I can actually view the information I want from the Exchange 2003 ESM, but of course that will go away when we make the final move to the Ex2007 SERVER. I hope they include a way to view this info in the GUI with the release of SP1.
