But of course :)

But, hmm spreadsheets. I'm developing a bit of a hatred of scripting into Excel, CSV files okay? It'll still open with Excel and is far easier to write to ;)

And which version of Exchange are we talking about? There's no consistency, we would use different methods for every single version (2000 / 2003 / 2007).

Then our best bet is WMI. How do you feel about a little bit of PowerShell? You'd need to grab it from here:

http://www.microsoft.com/windowsserver2003/technologies/management/powershell/default.mspx

It's useful to get a bit familiar with it, if you end up upgrading to Exchange 2007 you'll find you use PowerShell rather a lot.

Once you have that, you can potentially use my script here (attached as a code snippet at the bottom for convenience):

http://www.highorbit.co.uk/?p=871

Simply open up PowerShell, and paste Get-2003MailboxStatistics into the prompt. Then it can be used to get all of the information Exchange can give you about the mailboxes.

PowerShell does not have to be installed on the Exchange Server itself, you could install it on your workstation or anywhere else. However, you'll need to be running PowerShell as an Exchange admin to be able to use the script (Run As will do).

Once it's all pasted in, you can run this command in the shell:

Get-2003MailboxStatistics -Server "ExchangeServer02"

And it will generate a report from your server. That can be exported to a CSV file with:

Get-2003MailboxStatistics -Server "ExchangeServer02" | Export-CSV "MailReport.csv"

And finally from there opened up in Excel.

function Get-2003MailboxStatistics {
  Param(
     [String]$Identity = "",
     [String]$Server = $Env:ComputerName,
     [String]$Database = ""
  )
 
  $Filter = "ServerName='$Server'"
  if ($Database -ne "" ) { 
    $Filter = "$Filter AND StoreName='$Database'"
  }
  if ($Identity -ne "") {
    $Filter = "$Filter AND (MailboxGuid='{$Identity}' OR LegacyDN='$Identity'"
    $Filter = "$Filter OR MailboxDisplayName='$Identity')"
  }
 
  $MailboxStatistics = `
    Get-WMIObject -ComputerName $Server `
      -Namespace "root/MicrosoftExchangeV2" -Class "Exchange_Mailbox" `
      -Filter $Filter | `
    Select-Object `
      AssocContentCount, `
      @{n='DateDiscoveredAbsentInDs';e={ if ($_.DateDiscoveredAbsentInDs -ne $Null) { `
        [System.Management.ManagementDateTimeConverter]::ToDateTime(`
          $_.DateDiscoveredAbsentInDs)}} }, `
      MailboxDisplayName, TotalItems, LastLoggedOnUserAccount, `
      @{n='LastLogonTime';e={ if ($_.LastLogonTime -ne $Null) { `
        [System.Management.ManagementDateTimeConverter]::ToDateTime($_.LastLogonTime)}} }, `
      @{n='LastLogoffTime';e={ if ($_.LastLogoffTime -ne $Null) { `
        [System.Management.ManagementDateTimeConverter]::ToDateTime($_.LastLogoffTime)}} }, `
      LegacyDN, `
      @{n='MailboxGuid';e={ ([String]$_.MailboxGuid).ToLower() -Replace "\{|\}" }}, `
      @{n='ObjectClass';e={ "Mailbox" }}, `
      @{n='StorageLimitStatus';e={ `
        Switch ($_.StorageLimitInfo) {
          1 { "BelowLimit" }
          2 { "IssueWarning" }
          4 { "ProhibitSend" }
          8 { "NoChecking" }
          16 { "MailboxDisabled" } }} }, `
      DeletedMessageSize, Size, `
      @{n='Database';e={ "$($_.ServerName)\$($_.StorageGroupName)\$($_.StoreName)" }}, `
      ServerName, StorageGroupName, StoreName, `
      @{n='Identity';e={ ([String]$_.MailboxGuid).ToLower() -Replace "\{|\}" }}
 
  Return $MailboxStatistics
}
