I have two MS Exchange 2007 servers; one for client access/hub transport and the other for mailbox storage.  I readily have the stats for processing incoming smtp mail through my spam filter, but I need the approximate number of internal and outbound smtp emails processed per day.  This is to size a email archival solution with the appropriate model of hardware.

Actually MOM pulls the performance data from the servers, but you can also do this manually with Perfmon

The counters you're going to be interested in are:
MSExchangeTransport SmtpReceive / Messages Received Total
MSExchangeTransport SmtpSent / Messages Sent Total

Scope them to the send and receive connector(s) you're interested in and you will see the total since the service was started.  You could just use those numbers or if you wanted an easy way to collect data historically you could create a Counter Log that polls for the count daily, you could even do it to CSV and use Excel to produce a graph if you're so inclined...
