[KB] How do I monitor Exchange Online mailbox sizes?
These days, every organization depends on emails for communication. As an IT admin, you need to monitor Exchange Online mailbox sizes to keep an eye on space consumption and mailboxes reaching their size limits. Depending on the native tools for such varied information would eat into more than half of your average work day. PowerShell can help, but writing scripts can be a bit complex and time-consuming.

- Mailbox sizes
- Mailbox size restrictions
- Current mailbox size vs. quota
- Archive mailbox sizes
- Mailbox storage information
- Mailbox size over time
To access these reports:
- Go to the Exchange Online tab.
- Click the Mailbox Reports category.
