Balancing the number of mailboxes across Exchange 2010 and 2007 databases

In Exchange 2010, we now have the option to allow mailboxes to be automatically distributed across databases. However, the algorithm used simply randomly allocates the new mailbox to our chosen databases - rather than ensuring the mailbox count is balanced, and doesn't do anything about re-distributing mailboxes if you add new databases.

To help with this, and of course to help with any situation where you want to balance the number of mailboxes across a set of databases, Steve Goodman has written a simple script that help with moving mailboxes to balance out your databases.
