Would you like a report or just be able to see mailbox sizes for each user?

You can view the mailbox sizes in Exchange System Manager:

Administrative Groups -> your admin group->Servers->Your Server->Your Storage Group->Your mailbox store->mailboxes

Hi paullord,

You can use the script I attached to get a list in excel.

Rename the txt file to vbs. Right click the file and edit. In the Array, change "server1", "server2", server3" to your Exchange servers' name(s).

Cheers.

This looks interesting. Can you recommend a good vbs  interpreter?

Hi,

You can have a look at this:

Or you can just rename my txt file, double click it and it'll run. In our organization, we have about 5500 mailboxes and it took about 8 minutes to complete the report.

To add- yes I would like t see them in report format. I note when I right click and select export list, it doesn't export accurately

Having renamed to a .vbs format, if I double click on your file, it opens it rather than executing it

It means it can't find the server.

Did you disable "Hide extensions for know file types" before you renamed the file?

Yes I did. Thanks for your help. It needed to be run on the mail server. Wouldn't run accross the network.

Strange. Might be a permission issue. I'll have a look into it.

Hope it was at least useful!

Cheers.
