mailbox email volume per day [sent, receive items]

Hello Experts,

can you please provide me with a script that uses a csv file as input containing a list of mailboxes and then you to see the mailbox email volume per day ?

Our organization uses Exchange 2013

thanks

Try the following script below. Change $StartDate  to whatever value you want to start with. All results will be exported to the path in the $LOG variable.

$StartDate = (get-date).AddHours(-12).ToSingle()
$EndDate = (get-date).ToSingle()
$EXHUB = "exchange.domain.com"
$LOG = "c:\resutls.csv"
$users =  Import-Csv "c:\filename.csv"

    ForEach ($user in $users) 
        {

            Get-MessageTrackingLog -Server $EXHUB -Start $StartDate -End $EndDate -Sender $User | measure | select $user, count |
            Export-Csv -Path $LOG -NTI -Append

}

Thanks Will,

does this work for Exchange 2013?

will this return all email items/sent receive?

according to your script, how would be the structure of the input csv file?  how it will look at?
Will SzymkowskiSenior Solution ArchitectCommented:
Yes this will work for Exchange 2013. I have only set it up as sender (i have modified the script below to add both Sender and Recipients). The CSV will export the User and the total count for Sent/Received.

Script Updated...

$StartDate = (get-date).AddHours(-12).ToSingle()
$EndDate = (get-date).ToSingle()
$EXHUB = "exchange.domain.com"
$LOG = "c:\resutls.csv"
$users =  Import-Csv "c:\filename.csv"

    ForEach ($user in $users) 
        {

            Get-MessageTrackingLog -Server $EXHUB -Start $StartDate -End $EndDate |
            ? { ($_.Sender -eq "$user") -and ($_.EventID -eq "RECEIVE") -or ($_.Recipients -eq "$user") -and ($_.EventID -eq "RECEIVE") } | 
            measure | select $user, count |
            Export-Csv -Path $LOG -NTI -Append

}

Will,

How is the structure of the CSV input file? what fields should contain to generate the report without any issues?
Will SzymkowskiSenior Solution ArchitectCommented:
The CSV Output will have the User that you are querying and the number beside their name which represents the amount of mail they have sent/received.
