MessageStats 7.6 - Report Pack for Archive Manager User Guide

Mailbox and User Reporting

Reports in the Mailboxes folder provide Exchange mailbox and Lync/Skype for Business storage use information and details about archived mailboxes and users.

Storage Usage by Mailbox

This report shows the amount of archived storage used by an archived Exchange mailbox. It provides information about the physical storage used and the logical volume of the messages and attachments stored for a specific mailbox. Corresponding information about the active Exchange mailbox storage is provided for comparison purposes. You can view trend information for periods greater than one day.

Dates are shown in the local time of the Archive Manager server.

Though the single instance storage savings for archived attachments are applied for a specific mailbox, if a particular attachment is archived in several mailboxes, the attachment is counted once for each mailbox.

The report includes records up to and including the previous full day. It does not report information for the current day. Today’s data appears in the report when you run the Archive Manager gathering the following day.
