PowerShell script to find all Active Sync devices on an Exchange 2010 server that haven’t synced in a specified amount of time

I published my 1st Powershell script to Technet’s Script repository and Poshcode.org. You can grab it here and below are the details of the script straight from the help file:

Get-InactiveActiveSyncDevices pulls all user mailboxes with an Active Sync partnership and then selects the Active Sync devices that haven't synced in the specified period. These devices are sorted in ascending order and placed in a HTML table which is emailed to the specified user using a specified reply to address and SMTP server
The script 1st checks to see if Implicit remoting is needed to load the required PSsnapin (Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010), this is done by seeing it the $ExchangeConnectionUri variable does not have a $NULL value. If it contains a URI then create a new PSsession using the current credentials and import the session. If Implict remoting isn't needed then verify that the required PSsnapin (Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010) is loaded and if not try to load it locally. Then  Get-InactiveActiveSyncDevices uses Get-CasMailbox to pull all the user mailboxes (Not Discovery or CAS mailboxes) with Active Sync device partnerships and saves them to a variable called $ActiveSyncMailboxes. It then walks through each mailbox and uses Get-ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics to pull DeviceType, DeviceUserAgent, DeviceID, LastSyncAttemptTime, LastSuccessSync for each mailbox’s separate Active Sync device partnership and puts these properties in addition to the full name associated with the mailbox into a hashtable called $UserActiveSyncStats. The reason why Get- ActiveSyncDeviceStatistics isn’t used exclusively is because it does not have a property that stores just the name of the user who owns the Active Sync device, only a full Active Directory path to the Active Sync device. This hash table is used to create a custom PowerShell Object which is then added to $ActiveSyncDeviceList. A variable called $MatchingActiveSyncDevices holds all the Active Sync devices in $ActiveSyncDeviceList that haven’t synced to the Exchanger server in less than or equal to the number of hours specified in $HourInterval . $MatchingActiveSyncDevices is then checked to see if it’s an empty array or not. If it contains items an HTML header is created to format the table for the HTML email report and saved in a variable called $HTMLHeader . Then The Body of the email contains all of the criteria matching Active Sync devices from $MatchingActiveSyncDevices in ascending order which is converted to HTML using the HTML header information created earlier in $HTMLHeader. Otherwise a the body contains a message stating that no devices matched the given criteria.. An Email is then sent out to the user specified in $to from the address specified in $from using the email server specified in $SmtpServer. The body is generated from the sorted Active Synce Devices in $ActiveSyncDeviceList.
