I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

seems not able to do that.

Access is not listed as a supported dev environment here in the MSDN documentation.

ssmith81.  Thanks for the ideas.  The MS-Exchange link says to use the exchange shell and the command:


When I use this I get the error:
[PS] C:\Users\steven.xxxx\Desktop>Get-MailboxStatistics
Get-MailboxStatistics : Failed to commit the change on object "TEXCHANGE2007\St
andard Storage Group\Standard Storage Database" because access is denied.
At line:1 char:22
+ Get-MailboxStatistics <<<<
    + CategoryInfo          : NotSpecified: (0:Int32) [Get-MailboxStatistics],
    + FullyQualifiedErrorId : 43402815,Microsoft.Exchange.Management.MapiTasks

I am the administrator.  Any ideas.  I googled around and did not see a solution.
