Netmail today announced the availability of an easy-to-use reporting tool called ScanIt to help email administrators monitor the size and growth of Microsoft Exchange mailboxes. Monitoring the size and growth of Exchange mailboxes is an important part of good email management. ScanIt gives administrators an overview of the Exchange email system, enabling them to more accurately predict future email storage needs.

Microsoft Exchange mail servers are among the most critical systems that email administrators manage. That’s why email administrators in industries like education, healthcare, and government are under enormous pressure to ensure that the main avenue of communication—the Exchange email system—is running smoothly 24/7. Part of that job includes implementing smart mailbox quotas and periodically reviewing those quotas.

ScanIt provides statistics for the busiest mailboxes in the organization so administrators can monitor end user quotas, email consumption, and activity levels to prevent mailbox sizes from growing out of control.

“Email storage is an ongoing problem in managing email systems," said Michael Osterman, Principal Analyst with Osterman Research. “For example, in a March 2014 survey with mid-sized and large organizations, we found — as we consistently find — that 5 of the top 10 problems in managing email systems are directly related to mailbox storage growth and related issues.”

Compatible with Microsoft Exchange 2010, Exchange 2013, and Office 365, ScanIt also gives administrators the option to export detailed mailbox size reports, as well as lists of the busiest mailboxes in the organization, and provides the ability to search scanned mailboxes for particular statistics.

With ScanIt, email administrators can now access up-to-date information about the Exchange mailboxes in their organizations like:

  •     A global overview of the Exchange email system
  •     Total email message and attachment sizes
  •     Percentage of storage used
  •     Mailbox information like user, email address, and total mailbox size
