I want to clean some users mailboxes. I want to tell every user in which folders are the most of the Size in KB. In Outlook, I can view the size of each folder separately, I want to know if is possible to know the size  for each folder in a mailbox without configure the user mailbox in outlook. Is this possible in the Exchange System Administrator Console? or in another console?

Aditionally, I'm configuring a policy to delete each item in all mailboxes that are older than 2 years. I want to know what happen with calendar entries that are configured to occur in a time basis (recurrencies).

You cannot get individual folder sizes in Exchange System Manager or without loading the mailbox into an Outlook profile.  However, you can using some simple scripts.

Scripts get folder sizes located here:

I favor the WebDAV approach myself.

There are even more advanced scripts to do folder/mbox sizes here:
