Wondering how I can retrieve list of values for exchange mailboxes, like last logged on by, last log on time, size of mailbox, etc. Can these items be retrieved via powershell ? Need some way to query all mailboxes at once and export to text file, etc.

If so... then just add out-file NameofFile.txt -enc ASCII at the end

Get-mailbox | Get-mailboxstatics | out-file NameofFile.txt -enc ASCII

mailboxstatistics is decent, but there must be more details that can be retrieved somehow ...

Mailboxstatistics has everything you asked for I believe...

I think you are missing the total information due to formatting.

Try this

Get-mailbox | Get-mailboxstatics | fl * -auto | out-file NameofFile.txt -enc ASCII -width 2500

Thanks PS didn't like the 'auto' though ....

[PS] C:\>Get-mailbox | Get-mailboxstatistics | fl * -auto | out-file mailbox-sta
ts.txt -enc ASCII -width 2500
Format-List : A parameter cannot be found that matches parameter name 'auto'.
At line:1 char:49
+ Get-mailbox | Get-mailboxstatistics | fl * -auto  <<<< | out-file mailbox-sta
ts.txt -enc ASCII -width 2500
