I like adfind by MVP Joe Richards
http://www.joeware.net/freetools/tools/adfind/index.htm

adfind -default -f  "&(objectcategory=group)(mail=*)"  displayname mail -csv -nodn > c:\mailEnabled.csv
That will give you a csv on your C drive.
 
I also helped with a similar question earlier this year

Just for completeness, the below is a simple VB script will produce a report of all mail enabled groups and their location in your domain.

Save as a vbs and run via cscript, e.g:

cscript getAllMailEnabledGroups.vbs

To output to a text file:

cscript getAllMailEnabledGroups.vbs > results.txt

Set objRoot = GetObject("LDAP://RootDSE")
strBase = "<LDAP://" & objRoot.get("defaultNamingContext") & ">;"
strFilter = "(&(objectclass=group)(mail=*));" 
strAttrs  = "distinguishedName;"
strScope  = "subtree"
 
Set objConn = CreateObject("ADODB.Connection")
Set objComm =   CreateObject("ADODB.Command")
objConn.Provider = "ADsDSOObject"
objConn.Open "Active Directory Provider"
Set objComm.ActiveConnection = objConn
objComm.Properties("Page Size") = 1000
objComm.CommandText = strBase & strFilter & strAttrs & strScope
Set objRS = objComm.Execute
 
If objRs.RecordCount > 0 Then
	objRS.MoveFirst
	Do
		Set objGroup = GetObject("LDAP://" & Replace(objRS.Fields(0).Value,"/","\/"))
		WScript.Echo objGroup.cn & String(40-Len(objGroup.cn)," ") & " : (" & objGroup.distinguishedName & ")"
		objRS.MoveNext
	Loop Until objRS.EOF
End If
 
Set objRoot = Nothing
Set objComm = Nothing
Set objConn = Nothing
Set objGroup = Nothing
Set objRS = Nothing
