Unexpectedly, our event log is filling up rapidly with MSExchangeMTA events with various categories ranging from Interface, Operating System and Field Engineering. Diagnostic logging is not enabled for the MTA.  Exchange server is working well and messages seem to be going in and out as expected, just a bit slower.  

Below is a standard series of entries:
 
Event ID 3280 - Source: MSExchangeMTA  Type: Information  Category: Interface
====================================================
A MA_WAIT message was sent to the /o=Parr + Associates Management Services/ou=PARRASSOC/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=PASRV1/cn=Microsoft Public MDB application on session index 7. [XAPI APPLICATION 37 138] (8)

Event ID 9159 - Source: MSExchangeMTA  Type: Information  Category: Operating System
====================================================
(BASE IL INCOMING RPC(37) Proc 0)           Thread exiting, type = 6 (see SBCDERR.H) (4)

Event ID 3268- Source: MSExchangeMTA  Type: Information  Category: Interface
=====================================================
A MA_WAIT message was received from the /o=Parr + Associates Management Services/ou=PARRASSOC/cn=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=PASRV1/cn=Microsoft Public MDB application on session index 7. [XAPI APPLICATION 37 100] (8)

Event ID 3200- Source: MSExchangeMTA  Type: Information  Category: Field Engineering
=====================================================
A timer started with the timeout value set to 10. [XAPI APPLICATION 37 138] (6)



These entries fill up the log files rapidly and seem to repeat themselves ever 10 seconds.

Any help would be appreciated.  Thank you.

found the solution myself - logging WAS turned on for the MTA at the server level - right click the server and select properties, then diagnostic loging and selected MTA and changed it from level high to medium and it stopped filling up the event log files with the above messages.

This whole time I was looking in the wrong place - in the connections> internet mail > diagnostic logging. Had no idea/never thought that you could enable diagnostics at the server level...thought it was all done at the connection level.

Thanks for trying to assist me anyway....
