Want to pull out statistics from Exchange such as :
· messages sent per mailbox per day
· messages received per mailbox per day
· average message size
… And more if you want ?
Use Powershell and Excel now !
I- If you want to pull data from Exchange 2003 to 2007 Exchange versions, then you can use Exchange Profile Analyzer (EPA):
This tool uses WebDAV to interrogate the mailboxes and generates user profile data.
II- If you want to pull data from Exchange 2007/2010 servers, then you have to use Powershell to pull out these data
You cannot use Exchange Profile Analyzer on Exchange 2010 (you still can on Exchange 2007) as in Exchange 2010 and after, we gave up the WebDav protocol.
But we now use Powershell to query and ask the Exchange 2010 (and 2007) message tracking logs to pull out the same data as we had on EPA.
You can use the following TechNet script:
