We are running Exchange 2003 SP2.

I have found a message I am interested in via Exchange Message Tracking, but I would like to see the size of it...anyone know how I can do that?

Message Tracking doesn't give that sort of information in the console.

The information is logged in the raw Message Tracking log files. You could retrieve it from there manually - look for the 'totalbytes' column in the appropriate log file. Alternatively, you could use a third-party log parsing tool to build your own custom query against the Message Tracking logs to retrieve this information.

The message tracking logs can be found at \\servername\servername.log.

if u want check the size of the message that you found in message tracking then , if the message is stuck in the Queue you can go to Program Files\Exchsrvr\Mailroot\Queue and check the size of the .eml file. you can even open the message and check the content. and if the message is delivered to the recipient then you can check the size from the user's mailbox itself.
