  • i suppose the values of the most recent mailbox size are in the datawarehouse. So you would need to create your own custom report to get those values. But these 3 numbers give a good enough list of big mailboxes to start with imho.

  • This sounds like something that Exchange MP could be doing.  Have you imported the Exchange 2010 MP?  Or the Exchange 2007 MP?  Those may be able to get you the monitoroing you desire.


    FYI, in the Exchange 2007 MP, most discoveries are disabled and you have to turn on the discoveries and monitors that you want to use before anything gets monitored after importing the MP.

  • thanks dan , can you specify which exact monitor to enable for this request ? or is it a discovery object ? i read the guide already and did everything in it , im monitoring most of my environment but this part isnt showing for a reason i dont know , so if its possible please to specify which part to enable from that MP ( im using 2007 MP ) to see that info

    thanks

  • There isn't a mailbox size monitor (5000 mailboxes, 5000 monitors? that wouldnt make sense). But there's a report called top X mailboxes (or something like that :)).
