Its no longer available in the GUI.
Get-MailboxStatistics
http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb124612(EXCHG.80).aspx 
You can filter the mailboxes in a number of ways :
- Get-MailboxStatistics -Server "MYSERVER1"
- Get-MailboxStatistics -Database "Database DN"

Or:
You can pipe the results into a file and then open that in excel - this
thread explains how to go about this:

Hi

you can use the following command in the exchange shell

it shows you the mailbox size in MB and KB sort by the size and displays an additional information of the deleted item size of each mailbox.

I hope this helps you
Get-MailboxStatistics | sort totalitemsize | ft displayname, itemcount, @{ expression={$_.TotalItemSize.Value.ToKB()};label="Postfach in KB" }, @{ expression={$_.totaldeleteditemsize.value.tokb()};label="Gelöschte in KB" }, @{ expression={$_.totalitemsize.value.tomb()};label="Postfach in MB" }

I run two scripts:
1) will export all the users mailbox stats to a csv file.  I run this once a week
2) I use to get my top 10 biggest mailboxes.  Again I run this once week
1)
Get-MailboxServer | Get-MailboxStatistics | Export-csv MailboxStatistics.csv
 
2)
$Top10 = Get-MailboxServer | Get-MailboxStatistics | Sort TotalItemSize -Descending; for ($i=0;$i-le9;$i++){$xtxt = $top10[$i].DisplayName;$xtxt+= "";$xtxt += $top10[$i].totalitemsize;Write-Host $xtxt}
