We have an application that sends notification emails to a user account on our network.

They send from an account on our network.

I will lay it out as Application@company.com
and User@company.com

When this application does what it needs to do it sends on behalf of Application@company.com to User@company.com

This is all internal.

Here is what I want to know...I know how to view the SMTP logs to see mail that comes in and out, where can I go to view a log of emails sent within the network?

The message tracking logs are those logs that you need. Now, you can either go into ESM and run the message tracking centre to get basic information or you can use one of the many 3rd party applications (eg Promodag) which will interpret those same log files in a much more graphically rich manner.

It all depends on how much information you want out of it.

Well what I would like to know is if the message was sent successfully. I would also like to be able to read the message if possible but most important is to see if the message was sent without problems. The user said they have not recieved this message and that's why I was looking for some logs.

Here's something for you. Rather than send to user@company.com have it send to list@company.com where list is a Distribution Group. user@company.com and you@company.com are the members of that list. You will then get a copy of the mail and know that it's been delivered and you can read it.
If you don't get the message then it's a simple case of going into ESM and seeing if the message was submitted by the application in the first place.

Yeah, I am not sure if this application has any kind of log or not. I will try the message tracking center and see if this will work.
