I've run a query in message tracking and need to print the list that it creates.  Is there a way to do this?

Message tracking just uses the log files contained in the Program Files\ExchSrvr\ServerName.log folder; you can open those log files directly in Excel, Access, or a good text editor, and print out what you need.

Good luck.

Thanks it works but it's painful. I've only got the 5 previous days in there.  Is there a setting that will change that?

No pain, no gain?

You can correct the number of days.  In system manager, drill down through the hierarchy and find the server.  Right click, and tell it how long to leave the log files sitting on the server.

Hope that helps.

Nothing ever in the clear!

This technical paper will help you implement VMware’s VM encryption as well as implement Veeam encryption which together will achieve the nothing ever in the clear goal. If a bad guy steals VMs, backups or traffic they get nothing.

Thanks abobw.  I will do that.  Now all I have to figure out is how to automatically export these files into sql server so that I can have access to a managable DB of email traffic...

Assuming you're running Microsoft SQL server, the way to do it is to have a DTS package pull the log files in on a nightly basis - should not take you more than a few minutes to work that out.

I'd probably do something like:

a.  Figure out whenever the log file is rolled over
b.  Schedule a simple batch file script to move/copy the old log file to a processing directory and rename it
c.  Run the DTS script against the file in the processing directory - this can be scheduled as well.
d.  Run a final script to rename the file so that you don't process it again.


There's a few different ways to hammer out the details, but it's all pretty easy.

Good luck

Thank you sir!  We've got a few strong DBA's at work so I'll get their help and let you know how hard they laugh at me!  - Jest kidding.  I appreciate your help and will give it a shot. Now that I think of it we could use the data to work on some more plans to blacklist and try to manage the spam issues we have perhaps a little better.
