Here is an article with the syntax of Get-MailboxStatistics . You can run the command and have it sort the output by name, and then just tally the total of those users in Excel.

Here is another:

This next article will tell you how to export to a CSV so you can manipulate the results in Excel.

The following script gets mailbox size but i'm sure you can adapt it to use a filter with get-mailbox

Get-MailboxStatistics -Database “Mailbox Database” | Sort -Property LastLoggedOnUserAccount | Format-Table DisplayName, LastLoggedOnUserAccount, ItemCount, @{expression={$_.totalitemsize.value.ToMB()};label=”Size(MB)”}, LastLogonTime, LastLogoffTime

I'm not at work, so I cannot test this, but something along these lines:
Get-Mailbox A* | Get-MailboxStatistics | Measure-Object TotalItemSize -Sum

Open in new window

I forget the units of the output here, but you can convert the value up. For instance, if the value is in bytes, this would convert it to Gb:

1288490188.8 / 1Gb

Where 1Gb is a shortcut for 1073741824, or 1024 * 1024 * 1024 (Kb, Mb then Gb).
