Get all different types of mailboxes in Exchange 2010 and 2016

I had to get the amount of the different types of mailboxes that are available in Exchange.
Exchange 2010 and 2016 in this case.

As I had to execute this as a script I ran into the problem that you have a ‘bare’ powershell and thus first need to connect to Exchange.

For Exchange 2010, note the name of the snapin.

Exchange 2010 – Get Number of all Mailboxes (including +1 for a system mailbox)

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010
(get-mailbox -resultsize unlimited).count

Exchange 2010 – Get Number of Equipment Mailboxes

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010
Get-mailbox -recipienttypedetails EquipmentMailbox -resultsize unlimited | Measure-Object | Select-Object -expand Count

Exchange 2010 – Get Number of Room Mailboxes

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010
Get-mailbox -recipienttypedetails RoomMailbox -resultsize unlimited | Measure-Object | Select-Object -expand Count

Exchange 2010 – Get Number of Shared Mailboxes

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010
Get-mailbox -recipienttypedetails SharedMailbox -resultsize unlimited | Measure-Object | Select-Object -expand Count

Exchange 2010 – Get Number of User Mailboxes

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010
Get-mailbox -recipienttypedetails UserMailbox -resultsize unlimited | Measure-Object | Select-Object -expand Count

 

For Exchange 2016, note the name of the snapin. The actual powershell commands to receive the info are the same as with Exchange 2010.

Exchange 2010 – Get Number of User Mailboxes

Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.Snapin
Get-mailbox -recipienttypedetails UserMailbox -resultsize unlimited | Measure-Object | Select-Object -expand Count

Hope this helps you!
Cheers!
