Exchange Server Mailbox Statistics Report Tool

Managing the Exchange Servers in  storage capacity is little bit difficult for administrators when the server gets older and older and  when new users keeps adding in the list.

Even if there is any  daily monitoring report for mail flow, databases, disk space monitoring and everything still it’s difficult for administrators to monitor the end users having lot of old emails still in their inbox,sent items,subfolders which occupies lot of space.

 

It could be better if there is any kind of statistics report that can pull out the number mailbox items, oldest messages for all user so that we can ask the users to move old items to their PST archives.

There are lot of scripts which are available in the internet which  can be run on the mailbox server,DB’s to pull out these information.

I just found this excellent Tool developed  by author  Srinath Sadda and its available in the TechNet gallery for download.

The interesting part about this tool is that it doesn’t need power shell or EMS.Its a GUI based tool which can be run manually whenever required.

Note: This  tool can be run for a single mailbox, particular database as well as for  all mailboxes in a server.

 I just tested in my lab and its working fine and below are the results.

Downloaded the tool from the TechNet gallery (source file link above ) and installed.
