shell command to get an inventory of all mailboxes and distribution lists.

pma111 used Ask the Experts™
is there a way in exchange server to get a full report of all mailboxes, which AD account they are associated with (mailbox owner?), and all distribution groups. Just a really basic list of all mailboxes and distribution groups in a single report, showing type, e.g. this is a mailbox, this is a distribution list, written to CSV. Similar I suppose to a full version of the global address list in outlook but also showing hidden entries, but to easily show which items are mailboxes and which are distribution lists.
