WMI offers options to retrieve this information if you are on Exchange 2003.
Methodology will be different based on Exchange version.

Perhaps, add "WMI" to your dogpile/google/momma query.

Subject: [exchangelist] counting mailboxes


Does anyone know of a way of counting mailboxes from the command line?

Reason:  I am managing an Exchange server for a customer and they want to be
billed by the number of active mailboxes in any given month, which could
fluctuate up or down as they add and delete users.  So I want to schedule a
command line report which will save the user count to a file at midnight
every day (just add a single line to a text file somewhere), and then email
me the saved report on the first of every month.  I can manage the rst of
the programming, just needed a way of counting active mailboxes.

best regards
Mike Salim
