How can I count the number of messages in the EOP quarantine

I need to count how many messages are in the EOP quarantine. using "Get-QuarantineMessage | Measure" is no good because I hit the limits imposed by Microsoft. I'm sure the number if in the hundreds of thousands, much higher than the pagesize parameter will allow.

So, is there a command or script I can run that will return the number of messages quarantined?

Thank you

If you have that many, you will have to aggregate the results using the Page and PageSize parameters. Something like this:

$Messages = $null  
$Page = 1  
do  
{  
    $CurrMessages = Get-QuarantineMessage -PageSize 5000 -Page $Page
    $Page++  
    $Messages += $CurrMessages  
}  
until ($CurrMessages -eq $null)
