Exchange Shell – Get all shared mailboxes with primary SMTP

Exchange 2013 1

We recently received a request to provide a project manager with a full list of all shared mailboxes with their primary SMTP addresses that were in Microsoft Exchange.

To do this is a pretty straight forward task using Exchange Management Shell (EMS).

Just go ahead and open your EMS and run the following command:

Get-Mailbox -RecipientTypeDetails SharedMailbox -ResultSize:Unlimited | Select Identity,Alias,DisplayName,primarysmtpaddress | sort displayname

This will go through your Exchange environment and give you a list of all shared mailboxes, their name and the primary SMTP address for each Shared Mailbox.

If you want to export this information to CSV, use the command below:

Get-Mailbox -RecipientTypeDetails SharedMailbox -ResultSize:Unlimited | Select Identity,Alias,DisplayName,primarysmtpaddress | sort displayname | export-CSV C:\TGH\sharedmailboxes.csv

where:

  • C:\TGH\sharedmailboxes.csv = the filepath where you want to save your CSV file

This will then export all the information into a CSV file where you specified in your command line.

  1. I am wondering what the real value here is. Perhaps there is a call for shared mailboxes specifically, but maybe the PM needed info to which he/she was unaware. Perhaps a permissions report of all mailboxes would be better so that it isn’t only shared mailboxes, but mailboxes with delegation of any type.

    1. Migration to O365 – PM wanted a full list of all shared mailboxes and their primary SMTP addresses, no permissions or proxy/alias addresses. Why? who knows! but this carried out what she requested.
