Report the last time your Exchange servers were backed up

Like a lot of my scripts, they start from the hard work that someone else has done.  This one began as a similar script that Glen Scales wrote and posted over on his blog.  His version enumerates the servers/stores in a domain and outputs the results to the screen.

My needs required some tweaking since I have servers in multiple domains, and I wanted it to email the results to multiple people who are responsible for backups.  I also needed to account for servers that don”t have public and/or private stores (e.g., front-end servers, conferencing servers).  The script will email the report in HTML format, grouping the stores alphabetically by server name.  Change the constants at the top to suit your needs and then schedule it to run daily.  My next step is to note stores that haven”t been backed up in X days (perhaps two or three) and highlight them in red so it is easy to spot those stores (since my report currently has 60+ stores in it).  Until then, download this version here, or copy it below.
