Office 365 Script to Email Mailbox Count

We are getting ready to migrate all of our user 8000 users to o365. I would like to have a automate task run that will email the number of mailbox in o365.

I know i get this information by typing in (Get-Mailbox -resulltsize unlimited).count but how do I display this information in the body of an email that will be sent out every 30 to 60 minutes?

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.

As long as you send the message via PowerShell session connected to Exchange Online, you can use the value directly. $((Get-Mailbox -resulltsize unlimited).count) should evaluate to the current number, at the time of sending the message.

Thanks, how would I input the result of the command in the body of an email set by powershell. For example. Number of mailboxes in Office 365: xxxxx

Put the results in a variable and use it in your email body.

e.g.
$mbxCount = $((Get-Mailbox -resulltsize unlimited).count)
Send-MailMessage -To jd@domain.com -From admin@domain.com -Subject "Mailbox Count" -Body "Number of mailboxes in Office 365: $mbxCount"

Open in new window

You'll need to provide an SMTP server and credentials potentially for that...
