Messages/Items per folder reports

I am having a problem with the exchange server slowing down because some folders have several thousand items in it causing the IO on the hard drives to max out bring access down to a crawl.  I know the problem, what I am needing is a program that can give me a list of folders and how many items in them.  I can get totals on the mailboxes easy but i need it for folders.  any ideas??

you should be able to use pfdavadmin to do this, it's not just for public folders:

Download it here:

connect to the ex server you want to report on
enable logging, tools > options > enable logging to file
run tools > content report > all mailboxes on this server, save to file
it'll create a very detailed tab delimited file, open it with excel, done.

it will do this if you click on the root 'mailboxes' folder. does it enumerate the mailboxes on the server? have you tried running it from the server console with an exchange admin account?
