Report for Exchange not getting desired results

Hi all,

I'm trying to compose a mailbox size report for Exchange 2010. The output is to an html file that is automatically emailed to whoever I wish it to be. The functionality works GREAT, but the report is outputting no data. Can someone tell me why? I have multiple databases, but it still shouldn't output a file with NO data. Here is the script:

#Variables to configure
$MailServer = "my mail server"
$ReportSender = "my email"
$ReportRecipient = "their email"
$MailSubject = ("Mailbox Report for " + $MailServer + " - " + ( get-date ).ToString('yyyy/MM/dd'))

Function sendEmail
{ param($smtphost,$htmlFileName)
$smtp= New-Object System.Net.Mail.SmtpClient $smtphost
$msg = New-Object System.Net.Mail.MailMessage $ReportSender, $ReportRecipient, $MailSubject, (Get-Content $htmlFileName)
$msg.isBodyhtml = $true

$exdata = Get-MailboxStatistics -Server $MailServer | Sort-Object TotalItemSize -descending | Select-Object DisplayName, ItemCount, TotalItemSize, StorageLimitStatus

$fileName = "exchange2010Report.html"
New-Item -ItemType file $fileName -Force

# HTML start

My suggestion would be to take a script we know works on other environments and see if you can get it to run on yours.

So, will this one run in your environment?

If so, then I would do a side-by-side comparison to see where you may have missed something.
