Defining Financial Chargeback

You can use Chargeback reports to calculate messaging traffic and storage chargeback costs. The chargeback amounts can then be distributed back to the departments or groups that incurred the expenses.

To see cost information in the Inventory Chargeback reports, you must define your cost amounts in the Financials property page.

1
Right-click the Tasks node of the navigation tree and select Properties.
2
Click the Financials tab.

Click Apply.

Gathering Exchange Public Folders

MessageStats does not gather public folder information in the Default Gathering task. As a result, the public folder reports do not contain content until you create and run an Exchange Public Folder gathering.

MessageStats provides the following public folder gatherings:

Exchange Public Folder Tree Structure Enumeration collects public folder tree structure using MAPI on public folder databases for Exchange 2010 and collects public folder tree structure on mailbox databases using PowerShell for Exchange 2013 and 2016.
Exchange Public Folder Tree Structure Analysis processes the Exchange public folder tree and aggregates replica object count information at the folder level.
Exchange Public Folder Instance Enumeration collects information about public folders and their content on the source server for Exchange 2010, 2013, and 2016.

Typically, you run the composite task which includes all the subtasks. However, if required, you can run the individual public folder gatherings separately.

To run a public folder gathering, there must be a public folder database or a mailbox database on the Exchange server that is used as the gathering server for the task. The task credentials account must have membership in the Exchange Public Folder Management security group.

For Exchange 2010, the task credentials must have full access to a mailbox that is used for MAPI logon. You can use the mailbox that is associated with the task credentials.

For more information about the rights and permissions needed to run gatherings, see “Required Rights on Exchange Servers” in the MessageStats Quick Start Guide.

For information about what to do if a public folder is located on a remote site, or if the server hosting the public folder is unavailable, see Troubleshooting a public folder gathering .

1
Expand the Exchange Organizations node and select an organization or a server.
3
From the Template list, select Exchange Public Folders.
6
Click Finish.

Troubleshooting a public folder gathering

The following information can help you troubleshoot some issues that you may encounter when gathering public folder information.

By default, when gathering public folder attributes from an Exchange server, MessageStats connects to the Exchange server using the Exchange gathering server defined for the organization.

However, if the public folders are located on an Exchange server that is in a remote site, this method does not gather all the public folder attributes. To gather all the attributes from the remote site, a direct connection to the Exchange server is required.

You can override the gathering server for the specific task and set a direct connection using Legacy Public Folder MAPI dialog in the Create Task wizard.

4
Clear the Use Default Configuration check box.
5
Select I want to use the following server for public folder gathering tasks.
6
Select Access the Exchange server directly.
7
Click Next and click Finish.

For Exchange 2010 Public Folder gatherings, if one Exchange server that contains a public folder database is unavailable (such as down for maintenance), the gathering for all other Exchange servers that contain a public folder database will complete with warnings.

Gathering Content and Attachment Information

The content and attachments gathering tasks collect information about the email content and attachments in your Exchange organization. Typically, you use these gatherings to collect detailed data for a few mailboxes that you are investigating.

These gatherings can consume a large amount of processing capacity and memory to gather data, and use a large amount of database space to store data, so they are not included in the default gatherings.

Content and Attachments gatherings are available only for mailboxes and for public folders.

The account which is used to run a Mailbox Content and Attachment gathering task requires special permissions.

For Exchange 2010 and 2013, the account used to run the Public Folder Content and Attachment gathering task also requires access to the public folders.

For information about how to grant the various permissions and how to configure Exchange impersonation, see the section titled “Rights Required for Specialized Gathering Tasks” in the MessageStats Quick Start Guide.
