What does error 7011 of the exchange transport log search mean?

I am trying to learn the ins and outs of exchange and our environment.
I am trying to learn the events that show up in MOM.  One event that I have is the following:
The Microsoft Exchange Transport Log Search service failed because the parameter that sets the location of the message tracking logs was set to an invalid value.

It says the event ID is 7011
It gives me the following link:  http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?LinkID=67336&id=39B01FA5-9E3C-43A1-A95F-A80BDD4BEC43
but the info there does not really explain why I am getting this log, or maybe it does and it is just over my head.
Anyways, can anyone explain to me in layman's terms what this is, thanks.

Well, its not that complicated i guess:

Exchange can write a Message Tracking Log which will log information about all incoming and outgoing e-mail. This is primarily for troubleshooting because you can view the message tracking log and search through it in case of a problem, e. g. when some e-mail does not reach the intended recipient.

In your case the path to where this log should be saved is invalid. That means Exchange cannot write the Message Tracking Log and thus you cannot use it for troubleshooting and other purposes. Thats because there actually is no Message Tracking Log at all because Exchange couldn't write.

Have a look at the "User Action" section of the link you provided above. There is the follwing link:

http://go.microsoft.com/fwlink/?linkid=30939&l=en&id=50eb5213-cf27-4179-b427-38d751ee4a70

where you can find instruction on how to configure the location of the Message Tracking Log.

Hope this helps
