Exchange

I have over 300 people.  I'd like to look and see how much email from the most down to the least.  I've looked through it, but I can find it.  It is Exchange 2010.

Thank you.

There are two scripts I use for this process.

This one I like as it put it in to a CSV file so I can play around with it in Excel:

This one puts does the same thing, but has it in an HTML file:

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

I'm really sorry, I haven't used Exchange for a long time.  I can open up Exchange Manager shell, and then I get:

[PS] C:\Windows\system32>

So, what do I do next?

Again, I'm very sorry I haven't used Exchange forever.

Hi,

Run the command get-mailboxreport.ps1 with the parameters mentioned on the link given by Simon. For example for getting report for server run the command Get-MailboxReport.ps1 - server then mention name of the exchange server.


Thanks

You need to download either of the scripts I have linked to above, then follow their instructions on how to generate the report.

a. You are using PowerShell, not Exchange Management Shell.
b. As pointed out twice already, you need to download the script/s from the links I provided above. This is NOT a built in function.

I don't understand your reason for wanting the question closed.
You have been provided with solutions that require additional scripts.

I know what you're saying, but I don't know how to use the scripts. A friend looked at it to, and he didn't know either how to set up the script, he just showed me just use Exchange 2010; look with any client, can open it up and look at the mailbox.
