Exchange 2016 – Check mailbox creation date
There may come a time when you have been requested to provide HR or your manager a list of mailboxes and their creation dates.
This is a simple task to do, lets jump right to it.
Firstly, launch the Exchange Management Shell (EMS) and enter in the following command:
- Get-Mailbox * | Select-Object Name,whenMailboxCreated
You will get a list of all mailboxes as we used the * option in the command, you can narrow this down to one user if you need to as follows:
You can also use the “whencreatedUTC” object, remember that whatever your timezone the time might be different, for example, if we use the command with the “whencreatedUTC” switch it shows 2 hours behind, see below active directory properties:
If you double click on the value above you will see the box below, time shown in UTC.
This should also work for Exchange 2010 and 2013.
hope it helps.
