We have a new exchange 2003 server that has the information store growing at a very rapid rate. With that being said we are looking at going with a new solution since we are not able put any controls as to mailbox sizes in place. The question is how can I tell how much mail in the information store is internal email. If there is away to find this out it would help to push to this new solution.

Thanks in advance.

It isn't really possible to tell what is internal and what is external.
You can get a very rough idea from the size of the database file sizes. The priv1.stm contains messages submitted by non-mapi clients, which often means external clients, but not always.
