Getting Mailbox sizes


Remember the days when you could open ESM click on the mail store and see all the mailbox sizes? then you could sort them with a click and  know which users to go have a discussion with about mail usage? Where did that go in Exchange 2010\2007?

You can use powershell to gather all that info and export it to a CSV

Get-MailboxStatistics | sort-object totalitemsize -Descending  | select-object displayname, itemcount, totalitemsize | Export-Csv -path c:\mboxStats.csv

Or if you want the GUI back

Glen Scales Developed a very cool powershell script that gives you a GUI for mailbox sizes

Exchange 2007 http://gsexdev.blogspot.com/2008/05/version-5-of-mailbox-size-gui-script.html

My only gripe is that he thought of it first Smile

Great script man!
