Does anyone have a simple way to create a powershell or other type of script to generate list (export to .CSV) that will list all disabled users with mailboxes?  

This is an Win2008 domain using Exchange 2007.

bepsoccer1, that won't work. UserAccountControl doesn't get returned by get-mailbox. One way you can do this is to use the quest powershell cmdlets (Now owned by dell, just google quest powershell) and running
get-aduser -disabled -includedproperties msexchaddressbookflags| where {$_.msexchaddressbookflags -notlike $null} | select samaccountname | export-csv c:\file.csv

You script did work.  Can I add the default email SMTP address and show if the mailbox is being forwarded to another mailbox to that query as well?  That would help designate if we have already moved the default to another user or forwarded all email?

You can change your where to
{$_.UserAccountControl -Match "AccountDisabled" -and $_.ForwardingAddress -eq $null}

Open in new window

if you want to filter out mailboxes that have been forwarded.  And to show the primary email addres you can add
select Name,Database,UserAccountControl,PrimarySmtpAddress

Open in new window

to the line.

So the final may look something like this.
Get-Mailbox | where {$_.UserAccountControl -Match "AccountDisabled" -and $_.ForwardingAddress -eq $null}| select Name,Database,UserAccountControl,PrimarySmtpAddress | export-csv c:\disbaledMailboxes.csv -notype

Open in new window
