Gathering actual Exchange statistics

Hello,
    I recently saw a webinar for an Exchange Archive appliance that looks good.
    They have a sizing tool to predict what size of their appliance to buy. We used the following averages:
Daily Emails per Account:      20
Avg Email size in KB:           100
     Is there some way to actually measure this on my Exchange 2003 server?  Without buying something?
     More of a technical curiosity than a requirement. We have 86 people here, and their smallest storage product will keep 11 years of emails according to these averages. So this process makes me wonder what these measurements really are for my server.

     Any info is appreciated.
