SMTP - IP - Exchange question

I am troubleshooting an email issue from my company to another company. I would like to set up a performance monitor log that will analyze the following data...

1. time the email was sent.
2. log my external IP adress (from)
3. log the IP adress to whom I am tring to connect to (to)

Basically I would like to know what counters do I need that will in a Preformance monitor log will display the same info found in SMTPDiag.

Any ideas?

Perfmon will not record that information. Perfmon just records numbers, nothing else.

You could enable logging on the SMTP virtual server in Exchange, although that doesn't always log enough information to be of use.

The NDRs are the most useful with diagnosing problems. However if you are the recipient of the email messages, your hands are tied with diagnostics, as there is a good chance that the problems are not something that you can resolve.

You may get further assistance if you post in the Exchange server topic area.
