Logging SMTP traffic in Exchange, detailed and in real time

I am used to linux mail systems (postfix) and its superb log files for everything.

I'm looking for great tools for monitoring the smtp traffic in Exchange. I know how to enable logging in the properties of the "Default smtp virtual server" but that is far from enough.
I miss two things:

1. Detailed logging of everything like in a syslog for Linux, not only the so called "user friendly" logs that is generated in Exchange.

2. Real time logging, i.e. the ability to have the log file rolling in a window on my screen during fault finding and similar.

Any experience of this?

Thanks in advance
Yours sincerely
