This script reads Exchange Organization data and creates a single Microsoft Word document. A later version will support exporting to an Html file.
The script requires an Exchange Management Shell for Exchange Server 2016 or newer. Older EMS versions are not tested.
A locally installed version of Word is required, as plain Html export is not available, yet.
The default file name is 'Exchange-Org-Report [TIMESTAMP].docx'.
Most of the script requires only Exchange admin read-only access for the Exchange organization. Querying address list information requires a membership in the RBAC role "Address Lists".
The script queries hardware information from the Exchange server systems and requires local administrator access to the computer systems.
# Example 1
# Create a Word report for the local Exchange Organization using
# the default values defined on the parameters section of the PowerShell script.
# Example 2
# Create a Microsoft Word report for the local Exchange Organization with
# a verbose output to the current PowerShell session.
The script is based on the ADDS_Inventory.ps1 PowerScript by Carl Webster: https://github.com/CarlWebster/ActiveDirectory
This script gathers a list of enabled users for a selected Exchange Server client protocol. The list of users is sent by email as HTML text in the email body or as an attached CSV file. You can select to gather data for a single protocol or for all protocols.
Available protocols are:
# Find users having all protocols enabled, create a CSV file per protocol and send an email with CSV attachments
.\Get-EnabledProtocolReport.ps1 -SendMail -MailFrom email@example.com -MailTo firstname.lastname@example.org -MailServer relay.varunagroup.de -Protocol ALL
# Find users having all protocols enabled, create a CSV file per protocol
.\Get-EnabledProtocolReport.ps1 -Protocol ALL -ExportCsv

This script creates an HTML report showing the following information about an Exchange 2019, 2016, 2013, 2010, and, to a lesser extent, 2007 and 2003 environment.
The report shows the following:
The script uses a separate CSS file for styling the HTML output.
# Example 1
# Generate an HTML report and send the result as HTML email with attachment
# to the specified recipient using a dedicated smart host
.\Get-ExchangeEnvironmentReport.ps1 -HTMReport ExchangeEnvironment.html -SendMail `
-ViewEntireForet $true -MailFrom firstname.lastname@example.org -MailTo email@example.com -MailServer relay.mcsmemail.de

When using this PowerShell script you can update the guest user's thumbnail photo to a photo that aligns with your company's corporate identity and compliance guidelines, and you do not have to rely on the Azure AD default photo.
# Set the photo ExternalUser.png for all guest users if no photo exists
.\Set-GuestUserPhoto.ps1 -FilePath D:\Photos\ExternalUser.png -GuestUsersToSelect All -UpdateMode SetIfNoPhotoExists
# Set the photo ExternalUser.png for guest user JohnDoe@varunagroup.de if no photo exists
.\Set-GuestUserPhoto.ps1 -FilePath D:\Photos\ExternalUser.png -GuestUsersToSelect Single -UserPrincipalName JohnDoe@varunagroup.de
