Is there any way of finding out which mailboxes are using the Information Store defaults without looking at the properties of each individual mailbox???

you have to export your exchagne directory from Exchange Administrator

1. create a file with notepad called export.csv and enter the following line as the first line

Obj-Class,First Name,Last name,Display Name,Alias Name,Directory Name,Primary Windows NT Account,Home-Server,E-mail address,E-mail Addresses,Members,Obj-Container,Hide from AB,Use IS Defaults

This line has all the fields that the Exchange Admin directory Export will extract from your Excahnge Server.

Each Exchange field is separated by a comma.

Remove the fields you do not need, but leave the field Use IS Default, because that is the info you need.

2. Open Exchange Administrator console , select your server, site or container and select menu Tools- Directory Export.

In the Directory export windows, select your server and container and set the export file to the newly created csv file.

Select any other options necessary and click export.

The directory export tool looks at tthe csv you specified to see whether it has a headr line with specified fileds. If it has not it generates the general fields.If it has a headerline, then only those fields will be extracted.


When the extraction is done, you can analyze the file in Excel and check which records have the 'Use IS Defaults' field set to 1.
