1. Expand the Recipient Configuration node and then select the Mailbox node.
2. Double-click the mailbox with which you want to work.
3. On the General tab, the Last Logged On By text box shows who last logged on to the mailbox, and the Modified entry shows the date and time the mailbox was last modified.
4. On the General tab, the Total Items and Size (KB) areas show the number of messages in the mailbox and the current mailbox size in kilobytes, respec¬tively.

If you want to view similar information for all mailboxes on a server, the easiest way is to use the Get-MailboxStatistics cmdlet. Here are some examples of using this cmdlet.



Get-MailboxStatistics -Identity 'Identity' [-Archive <$true|$false>] [-DomainContoller DomainController] 
[-IncludeMoveHistory <$ true|$false>] [-IncludeMoveReport <$true|$false>] 
Get-MailboxStatistics -Server 'Server' | -Database 'Database' [-DomainContoller DomainController]


Get-MailboxStatistics -Server 'corpsvr127' 
Get-MailboxStatistics -Database 'Engineering Primary' 
Get-MailboxStatistics –Identity 'cpandl\williams'
