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'))

#SendEmailFunction
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
$smtp.send($msg)
}

$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
Add-Content $fileName "<html>"

# HEAD start
Add-Content $fileName "<head>"

add-content $fileName '<STYLE TYPE="text/css">'
add-content $fileName  "<!--"

Add-Content $fileName ("<td width='30%'>" + $exdata[$alternateTableRowBackground].DisplayName + "</td>")

sendEmail $MailServer $fileName


Any help is appreciated. Thanks!

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.

You can download complete script from here :http://gallery.technet.microsoft.com/office/Exchange-2010-Mailbox-Size-c3746baf
If you still do not find output data by using this, you can have a look at this automated option (http://www.exchangereports.net/) which would be proficient and appropriate solution for you. By using this, you will be facilitated by automatic process of emailing reports to you at a scheduled time with up to the granular level reports.
