In the Exchange System Manager, drill down to your mailboxes (Server/First Storage Group/Store/Mailboxes).  You will see the size of the mailbox and the total number of items.  You can decide if the size or volume constitute a "heavy/active" user.

I certainly can't say that is the _only_ way to do it, but it is the first thing that came to mind, as well as probably the quickest and easiest way to determine the resources being used - no programming, seaching logs, etc.

Is Your AD Toolbox Looking More Like a Toybox?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

What I am looking for is a way to see who is sending and receiving the most email in a day/week etc.

Yeah, that's definitely 3rd party or you'll spend all your time analyzing logs, etc.  I found this on a Google search.  Seems like what you're looking for, but I'm sure it's just one of dozens...

Thanks for the help.  Might me something that I can start working on.  Seems to me that it would be a great tool to use for managing server/network performance, maybe???

Post back if you find any util.  I'd be interested.  Although since I block music and video attachments, I'm not too concerned with the hundreds of one-line emails the kids send all day :)

Most utilities will base their information on message tracking, so if you don't have message tracking turned on then you need to turn it on.
If you have cash to burn then Quest Message Stats is far and away the best tool for this job. However it is also the most expensive.

Alternatives include Promodag as listed above and Mail Detective from Advsoft.

Message tracking is the best way.
If not enabled enable it

Then put in the username on by one and see who receives mails more per day or per week and then you can move them according to usage.
