I am trying to migrate our small company to hosted Exchange Server from in-house.  I would like to know which mailboxes need some help slimming down before the migration.  Is there any way to list the sizes of the individual mailboxes?

I've done this in the past with Quest powergui and the Exchange management tools.

You can list all the mailboxes and see sizes.

Comfortgenious:  Can I type the "Get-MailboxStatistics" command into the Exchange Management Shell?  

What do I need the Power Management Shell for?  Not sure how this comes into play.

I'm the Controller, not a systems manager so you can't explain too much to me.  Thanks.

Answer appeared technically perfect but I'm too busy right now to test something that I don't understand.  Pointing me to an article just buries me more.
