I am currently running the following script to display the number of mailboxes that exist in the Exchange 2003 environment:
$servers='server01'#, 'server02'
$outfile="c:\scripts\serverbylocation.csv"
 Get-Wmiobject -namespace root\MicrosoftExchangeV2 -class Exchange_Mailbox -computer $servers `
| select-object MailboxDisplayName,Size,ServerName,StorageGroupName,StoreName `
| export-csv $outfile -notype

What do I need to do to add in the AD object of  physicaldeliveryofficename?
What I would like to do is have the option to sort my results by location.

Can you just not add physicaldeliveryofficename to your current script ?

e.g.
$servers='server01'#, 'server02'
$outfile="c:\scripts\serverbylocation.csv"
 Get-Wmiobject -namespace root\MicrosoftExchangeV2 -class Exchange_Mailbox -computer $servers `
| select-object MailboxDisplayName,Size,ServerName,StorageGroupName,StoreName,physicaldeliveryofficename `
| export-csv $outfile -notype

I tried that but when I execute the script that column is blank.

Do you get the same thing if physicaldeliveryofficename is the 1st object?

WMI doesn't return that field. You have to pull it from AD.

No means to test this, should be this or very close to this.

Chris
$servers='server01'#, 'server02'

$outfile="c:\scripts\serverbylocation.csv"

Get-WmiObject Exchange_Mailbox -Namespace root\MicrosoftExchangeV2 -computer $servers | 
  Select-Object MailboxDisplayName, Size, ServerName, StorageGroupName, StoreName, `
    @{n='Office';e={ 
      $User = (New-Object DirectoryServices.DirectorySearcher("(legacyExchangeDN=$($_.LegacyDN))")).FindOne()
      $User.Properties["physicaldeliveryofficename"][0] }} | 
  Export-Csv $outfile -NoTypeInformation
