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!

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.

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.
