Explain ItemCount Parameter - Get-MailboxFolderStatistics

I made the mistake of including the ItemCount field in a report that I gave the owners of my company. They want to know what is included in this count. I cannot find out what this means.

Please help find a website that explains this for me.

Thank you!

Ahh ItemCount 'should' be everything in a folder or subfolder excluding Calendar, Tasks, Notes, etc

Actually Im wrong again.. II just tested and ItemCount covers Tasks.  So I'd assume it also covers Notes, And Calendar.

good luck.. I couldn't find anything.  Do like I did, I ran

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>get-mailboxstatistics | select-object totalitemsize,totaldeleteditemsize,itemcount,lastlogontim
e,foldername

On my own mailbox, deleted items from Tasks, calendar, Deleted Items and each time my ItemCount decreased by what I deleted.

You may check this reference.. The article is for Exchange 2003 but IMO it applies to all versions of exchange..

The property returns the number of nonfolder items in a folder/mailbox.Also keep in mind that the Itemcount value from Get-Mailboxstatistics includes the hidden items which are not visible in outlook.
