Try this script instead of doing all process in pipeline...
$mailboxs = Get-Mailbox -ResultSize unlimited
$(Foreach ($mailbox in $mailboxs){ 
 $mailbox | Get-MailboxStatistics |
  Select DisplayName, StorageLimitStatus, TotalDeletedItemSize, ItemCount, @{expression={$_.totalitemsize.value.ToMB()};label=”Size(MB)”}
})| Sort -Property "Size(MB)" -Descending | c:\Exchangereports\emailreport.CSV

Powershell has a hard limit of 524,288,000 bytes returned from a query.
The value for the powershell limit is in web.config file.
To increase the limit, increase the value and then recycle the app pool or perform an iisreset.
In addition, The memory requirement can be reduced by limiting the query to 1000 mailboxes at a time using the where-object to filter those mailbox.

where is the web.config file located because the one in the wwwroot does not have the information in there to be changed.
