Enumerate mails per user/time period

Exchange 2007. I've been asked to enumerate the volume of mails sent/received by/to a few specific users, if possible separating internal and external, for a SharePoint project.

I thought that would be easy (used to Exchange 2003), at least with some manual work, but I can't get such output from Message Tracking in Exchange 2007.

Is it possible, and if so, how?

See http://www.msexchangegeek.com/post/2009/01/21/Using-Log-Parser-to-determine-the-email-traffic-statistics-to-and-from-a-particular-mailbox.aspx for help. You can segragate the outbound and inbound emails using the SQL queries.
another good read is http://exchangepedia.com/blog/2006/10/exchange-server-2007-message-tracking.html
There are some tools available as well. You may want to take a look at Quest MessageStats or simillar.

Thank you very much for linking to these resources. - I admit I find it hard to accept that you actually can't get a list of mails sent/received by/to a particular user, for a certain time period, in Exchange 2007 out of the box.

I need to work with this or even buy a product to do the work for me, though I don't know whether it is worth the money.

I'll let the question remain open a while more, to see if anybody has some more input.
