Run this in an exchange management shell

$users= Get-ADUser -filter * 
foreach ($user in $users) { Get-MailboxStatistics $_. | Select DisplayName,TotalItemSize,ItemCount }
Export-CSV C:\MailboxReport.csv

Open in new window


As for folder hierarchy, are you referring to an individual mailbox?

I was going to suggest Get-MailboxFolderStatistics but I wasn't sure what he meant by folder hierarchy.

What are you replacing username with? it should be the login username. Try this one.

Get-MailboxStatistics username | Select DisplayName,Foldersize,ItemsinFolder

Open in new window

What version of Exchange? and you are running this from the Exchange Management Shell and not just Powershell?

It should be FT for Format-Table instead of Select
Get-MailboxStatistics username | FT DisplayName,Foldersize,ItemsinFolder

Open in new window


Select would be used if you wanted to use the export-csv
