Display Size of Files From Multiple Directories

I have hundreds of user directories all with one common file, namely their Mailbox.  I am trying to get a listing of the size sorted for each user's Mailbox.  I am running Solaris 2.6.

I have tried:    find . -name Mailbox -print | ls -al | sort -nr +4
but it only searches the current directory the command is run under.

Do find . -name Mailbox -print -exec ls -l {} \; |sort -nr +4

The {} is the "found filename"

You can't pipe the output of "find" to ls like that; ls is ignoring it, so whats it's doing is just the "ls -al |sort" bit
