Exchange – Display Mailbox’s by size

KB ID 0000469 Problem Yesterday a client asked me how he could find out, which of his users were the “worst offenders” for mailbox size. Normally a simple Get-MailboxStatistics command would be fine, and we would sort the results in descending order. Solution On one of the Exchange servers, launch the Exchange Management Shell.

Solution First from the web console ensure that SSH access is enabled > Remote Services Configuration > Enable/Disable Remote Shell. SSH into the host...
