Server usage report not showing emails sent/received correctly

Hi,

Having only just stumbled across this aspect of SBS due to my manager forwarding me a report, I've noticed that the emails sent/received are incorrect by a huge amount. Over a 2 week period, apparently I've only sent 3 emails from my Exchange account. I know this figure is hugely wrong. It's not just myself, it's every account we have here that's showing very small amounts of emails being sent. I've checked the Exchange logs and these show what I would be expecting.

Does anyone have any ideas as to what might be causing this? If you need any more info, please let me know so I can have a look as I inherited this server, not set it up (unfortunately).

Thanks

Paul

This is an issue that was corrected in SBS SP1, so perhaps you haven't installed it yet?

Info on the problem:  http://support.microsoft.com/kb/867457

Info on how to intsall all 5 components of SBS SP1:  http://sbsurl.com/sp1

The problem shown there is to do with a very high amount of emails being shown, the problem we have here is the complete opposite. We're running SBS SP2 as well.

Sorry, I misread the question. There really is no SBS SP2, only Windows Server 2003 SP2. SBS itself is still SP1. If someone didn't properly install all five components to bring SBS to SP1 initially, then you could still have problems.

Please post the output from running SYSTEMINFO at a command prompt.
