our Exchange 2016 databases are approximately 2.5TB.

Does anyone know how to generate a Size list of all mails by year over all Mailboxes?
Like this:

 

Year MailCount Mailsize in MB
201424584534235MB
20152223324343MB
20162454725541MB

 

Based on this data, we could consider moving all mails older than n years to a separate archive system. With this data, I would then have an argument for buying this software.

 

There is a blog post here for Exchange 2010.
Unfortunately, the customisation for Exchange 2016 is beyond my skill set

Maybe someone has a tip for me.

Best regards

Daniel
