Hi,

I just want to verify what I have seen.  I would like to find out the size of folders for each user's mailbox on a 2003 SBS server with exchange 2003.  There are no exchange 2007 machines in the domain.

Am I correct that I cannot use powershell in this environment to find out this info?

Is there a different way I can pursue?

Thanks,
Bonnie

The size of the mailboxes? Or the size of the folders within the mailbox?

For the former, I have a PowerShell script here that does that for Exchange 2003:

The latter is possible, but much more difficult as you either need to dig into WebDAV or MAPI. It isn't impossible though, just harder.

Here is a microsoft site which will help you find out the Exchange attributes using VBSCRIPT.

I found a great link for getting a report of the folder sizes within the mailboxes:
