I open up Powershell 1.0 on Exchange 2007 and at the prompt I type in Get-MailboxStatistics <username> and it says:

The term 'Get-MailboxStatistics' is not recognized as a cmdlet, function, operable program, or script file. Verify the
term and try again.
At line:1 char:21
+ Get-MailboxStatistics <<<<


What am I doing wrong?

You need to use the Exchange Admin Console for that. The link should be installed on your desktop. It starts PowerShell with an extension set of cmdlets, which Get-MailboxStatistics is one of it. The complete command is:

powershell.exe -PSConsoleFile "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\bin\exshell.psc1" -noexit -command ". 'C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\bin\Exchange.ps1'"
