Enterprise Vault can do quota based archiving as well as aged based archiving, or a combination of the two.  One of the things that I used to struggle with when support Exchange Server was figuring out which mailboxes had a non-standard quota limit.

This script will help with that, as it will output any mailboxes on a specified Exchange Server which have a non-standard quota specified.

The output looks similar to this :

 C:Documents and SettingsAdministrator>cscript scanner3.vbs exch1

Microsoft (R) Windows Script Host Version 5.6

Layout is : mailbox display name, warning limit, prohibit send limit, prohibit send and receive limit

Sabina Rogers,100000,150000,250000




Number of mailboxes examined : 108

Number with non-standard quota : 3

You can get debug out by changing the line in the script :

debuggingmode = 0


debuggingmode = 1

You’ll get verbose output then of the queries used against Active Directory and other information.
