Exchange Shell – Get all Shared Mailboxes Information
Following on from our previous post about how IT professionals can use the tools available to them to make their lives easier, we have another Exchange Management Shell (EMS) script which will get all the information available from all Shared Mailboxes including the sizes of each mailbox.
Open up the Exchange Management Script tool and enter this command:
Get-mailbox -RecipientTypeDetails sharedmailbox -Resultsize unlimited | ft Name, Identity, ItemsInFolder, FolderSize
This will return all the information on your businesses shared mailboxes. However, this is only on screen using the EMS and the formatting is not the best.
Export to CSV
The better option is to take all the data and export it to CSV. You can then save the CSV as an XLSX file and carry out any formatting and tidying up that may be required.
So, go back into your EMS and run this command:
Get-mailbox -RecipientTypeDetails sharedmailbox -Resultsize unlimited | ft Name, Identity, ItemsInFolder, FolderSize | Export-CSV C:sharedmailboxinfo.csv
- C:sharedmailboxinfo.csv = CSV export location and file name
You should now find that you have a CSV file with all the information you require in it.
