Mild-mannered reporter, or Superman?

This week I had a bit of a respite from Office 365 migrations, but it was time to put together a necessary report for the upcoming migrations. Will people think you have super-powers if you can produce a report on your Office 365 environment? Well, maybe not, but at least you can impress someone with a nice report and CSV file on all your Office 365 mailboxes. Project managers love that stuff!

In addition to having the text of the report below, I've also attached it to this post to make downloading it easier. Try this in your lab, of course, but I tried to keep this fairly generic. It shouldn't need much modification since I'm reading your accepted domains right from the tenant.

The formatting of this doesn't come through as well on a blog as I'd like. Loading the file into the Powershell ISE should fix the indenting.
