How to determine the last time a mailbox sent/received email

How to determine the last time a mailbox sent/received email

(OP)
How to determine the last time a mailbox sent/received email. I have a list of mailboxes. I need to determine if they are still in use. No one seems to know the answer. I'm thinking that the modified date tells me the last time that mailbox has sent or received email. Correct? If I"m correct, how do I get that info, Modified Date? I don't know my way around Exchange 2010 to view individual mailboxes and see their properties.

RE: How to determine the last time a mailbox sent/received email

Rather than checking the last time it sent or received mail, it would be better to look at the last time a user logged into the mailbox, and that's a lot easier to come up with.

From Exchange powershell:

get-mailbox | get-mailboxstatistics | sort-object lastlogontime -descending | select-object displayname,lastlogontime

That will show you the sorted list of mailboxes and will let you know which haven't been logged onto in weeks/months/years. I use this all the time.

Did that help, or do you still need something else?
