Mailbox Size Reports:

Size is a crucial aspect of mailboxes because it is directly related to resource management on the server. Exchange Reporter Plus reports not only on mailbox size, but also on the growth of the mailbox. The current  mailbox size can be tracked against the allocated mailbox size. You can generate reports for Outlook mailboxes and the growth of the Exchange mailbox for both server-based as well as store-based data. These mailbox size monitoring reports constantly track the Exchange server performance.

Mailbox Status Reports:

Exchange mailboxes, like any other assets of the organization, need a periodic clean-up. It's easy to remove the unwanted components, but isolating them is tedious. Simply leave that task to Exchange Reporter Plus.

Inactive mailboxes can be segregated both by last sent mail and last logon time-- the inactive mailboxes at the sender and the recipient are tracked. There are also reports that can isolate mailboxes attached to expired accounts and orphaned mailboxes. The soon-to-expire mailboxes report functions like alarms that allow administrators to track mailboxes that will soon turn invalid. These reports come in handy when it comes to optimizing mailbox capacity and sizes.

General Mailbox Settings:

There are many other out-of-the-box reports that will help an Exchange administrator make his Exchange Server perform better.

A list of all Mailbox Enabled Users can be generated in a single shot. This report will give you a bird's eye view of all the users with mailboxes across the Active Directory environment. You can track hidden mailboxes and discard them to increase the available mailbox size by using the Hidden Mailboxes Report. Mailbox settings can also be monitored by using reports for mailbox features, message delivery settings and restrictions, and those with delegates, and even those that have automatic email forwarding enabled.

Room Mailbox Reports:

With more business, come more meetings, and with success, comes appraisal. Whatever may be the occasion, large organizations need meeting rooms often. But sometimes the locations are unavailable and at times few meetings just continue forever. That’s when it gets difficult to manage physical locations. Exchange Room Mailbox Reports show a detailed report on the physical meeting rooms in an organization. The administrator has to create a room mailbox and users can simply add the desired room mailbox to the meeting request. This makes delegation of a meeting room easy. The report displays room mailbox details like room booking status, the delegated user(s), room capacity, available booking window, meeting durations, and much more. Having known these dynamic details about room mailboxes, it becomes simpler for users to request a meeting without many hassles.

With Exchange Reporter Plus's Mailbox Properties reporting tool, combined with Mailbox Content Reports managing an Exchange Environment is not a night-watchman's job any more. It now provides actionable information for the admin and ensures smooth functioning of the Exchange environment.
