You can also get this information via a vbScript. Save this code as Ex-Mbx-Count.vbs. Modify the line: -
cComputerName = "LAB1EX1" ' Modify this value to suit your server

Then run "cscript Ex-Mbx-Count.vbs"
On Error Resume Next

Dim cComputerName

Const cWMINameSpace = "root/MicrosoftExchangeV2"

'The rest of the script will fetch mailbox sizes for our server. Mailbox sizes are in Kilobytes. 

Const cWMIInstance = "Exchange_Mailbox"

cComputerName = "LAB1EX1" ' Modify this value to suit your server

Dim strWinMgmts            ' Connection string for WMI

Dim objWMIExchange   ' Exchange Namespace WMI object

Dim listExchange_Mailboxs  ' ExchangeLogons collection

Dim objExchange_Mailbox           ' A single ExchangeLogon WMI object

' Create the object string, indicating WMI (winmgmts), using the

' current user credentials (impersonationLevel=impersonate),

' on the computer specified in the constant cComputerName, and

' using the CIM namespace for the Exchange provider.

strWinMgmts = "winmgmts:{impersonationLevel=impersonate}!//"& _


Set objWMIExchange =  GetObject(strWinMgmts)

' Verify we were able to correctly set the object.

If Err.Number <> 0 Then

  WScript.Echo "ERROR: Unable to connect to the WMI namespace."



  ' The Resources that currently exist appear as a list of

  ' Exchange_Mailbox instances in the Exchange namespace.

  Set listExchange_Mailboxs = objWMIExchange.InstancesOf(cWMIInstance)


  ' Were any Exchange_Mailbox Instances returned?

WScript.Echo "Total number of mailboxes on server " & cComputerName & " is " & listExchange_Mailboxs.count

End If

The best way is to open you active directory users and computers. right click on you exchange server name > click find. in Find users Window click on second tab :Exchange" and select "users with exchange mail box".  this will show all the users with mailbox and in bottom left corner number of records appears.
