Can someone provide a way for me to run this script but add the "import-csv" option so that i can run it against multiple accounts? [100+]

here is the script that works perfectly for a single mailbox to export out folder statistics:
Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -id Joe_Smith | Select Identity,FolderSize,ItemsInFolder,NewestItemReceiveDate |Export-CSV c:\results.csv

thanks in advance!

Quest AD Cmdlet version would be fine as well

If you have the user list in text file then try..
GC c:\User.txt | %{
Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -id $_ | Select Identity,FolderSize,ItemsInFolder,NewestItemReceiveDate} | Export-Csv c:\report.csv -NoTypeInformation

Open in new window


input file format..
UserA
UserB
UserC

Open in new window

gc users.csv | %{
Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -id $_ | Select Identity,FolderSize,ItemsInFolder,NewestItemReceiveDate |Export-CSV c:\results.csv
}

Export-Csv inside the foreach loop will cause the result file get overwritten for each user.. it should be placed outside the loop..

One approach would be to use custom objects to collect the information from each mailbox for later export. In this example, you'd have your list of users in a text file with a valid parameter (i.e. SamAccountName, DN, alias, etc.)
$folderStatsOutput = @()
Import-Csv c:\temp\users.txt | ForEach-Object {
   $folderStatsObj = Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -id $_
   $objTemp = New-Object PSObject -Property {
         Identity = $folderStatsObj.Identity
         FolderSize = "{0:0,0}"$folderStatsObj.FolderSize.ToKB()
         ItemsInFolder = $folderStatsObj.ItemsInFolder
         NewestItemReceiveDate = $folderStatsObj.NewestItemReceiveDate
    }
    $folderStatsOutput += $objTemp
}

$folderStatsOutput | 
Select-Object Identity,FolderSize,ItemsInFolder,NewestItemReceivedDate |
Export-Csv C:\temp\folderstats_results.csv -NoType

Open in new window

Sorry..
# change this line
Import-Csv c:\temp\users.txt | ForEach-Object {

# to this

Get-Content c:\temp\users.txt | ForEach-Object {

$results = @()
gc users.csv | %{
$results += , @(Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -id $_ | Select Identity,FolderSize,ItemsInFolder,NewestItemReceiveDate)
}

$results | export-csv c:\results.csv

I can't test this at the moment but this was quick and dirty.  If the hash array does not work let me know and I'll rework it when I get to my desk:

$list=@()
foreach($user in cat c:\scripts\userlist.txt)
{
      $mbstat = Get-MailboxFolderStatistics -id $user Select

      $hash=@{
            Identity = $mbstat Identity
            Folder_Size = $mbstat FolderSize
            Items = $mbstat ItemsInFolder
            Newest_Item = $mbstat.NewestItemReceiveDate
            }

            $obj = New-Object PSObject -Property $hash

            $list += $obj
}

$list | export-csv C:\Scripts\MBInfo.csv
