Message tracking can give you the raw information, along with stats out of perfmon and the like.
If it is a one off thing, then get hold of a trial version of Quest Message Stats. That will tell you more than you ever want to know about your email message flow. If it is going to be an ongoing thing... then don't look at Quest Message Stats as it is very expensive and once you have had it, everything else will look poor in comparison.

If you are competent with Access then you can also produce your own. There are some scripts available to do that.

Take a look at my web site here: http://www.amset.info/exchange/message-tracking.asp
I have links to the main tools and instructions on how to enable message tracking.

You cannot get any reports until you have data. It shouldn't take long.
