  • Counting mailboxes

    Good Morning,

    We have Exchange 2003 server currently and are looking at a cloud based solution.

    Is there any way to count the number of mailboxes / groups in use on Exch 2003 so I can get a grip on licensing numbers? Really don't want to go manually counting through all of our OU's.

    Cheers.

    How about a CSVDE to Excel and then some filtering on appropriate columns? (sorry, can't off hand suggest which ones but basically COUNTIF User AND HasEmail)

      Brilliant. Worked great with

      csvde -f c:\AD.CSV

      Then I went in Excel and found the email addresses under proxyAddresses column. Sorted by that column and deleted everything that was not an email address.

      That left me with one column. I cut and pasted that into TextPad, did a search and replace on the '@' symbol and it said it replaced 1038 symbols. So I have 1038 addresses. Cheers and thanks!
