hi vijayhakcer,

I don't have PS console in front of me now, but I guess you can use the cmdlet like for ex.:

Get-MessageTrackingLog -Start "11/19/2013 11:59PM" -End "11/20/2013 11:59PM" and after that you can pipe with " | select TOTALBYTES" and pipe this with "| measure-object " to get the sum, for ex.:

$all_mess = (Get-MessageTrackingLog -Start "11/19/2013 11:59PM" -End "11/20/2013 11:59PM" | measure-object)
$all_mess.sum()

About the inbound/outbound you can have by selecting the proper messages with pipe and "| where { -EventID -match "SEND" }" for mails send or "RECEIVED" - using the command from abovem and then you take ".count()" from that for ex.:

$send = (Get-MessageTrackingLog -Start "11/19/2013 11:59PM" End "11/20/20131:59PM"  | ? {_EventID -match "SEND"})
$send.count()

Then you divide :) I would love to help more but as long I am not in the fornt of the console... ;/ sorry mate. Hope helped at least a little bit.

I would recommend four ways of doing so:

1. Exchange Server Profile Analyzer tool:  Will analyze all logs, etc. and will provide average mailbox size.  This is a free download from MS at http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/download/details.aspx?id=10559
2. Log Parser Studio:  This utility can analyze all logs (IIS, SMTP, Exchange, etc.) and can provide granular results.  You can get a copy free from MS at  http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/Log-Parser-Studio-cd458765
3.  Get the script listed below from MS by going to http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/scriptcenter/bb94b422-eb9e-4c53-a454-f7da6ddfb5d6
4. I used to use the script in option 3 above but then I started using Splunk (http://www.splunk.com)
