Exchange 2007 Message Tracking Problem

I am running Exchange 2007 SP1 on Window Server 2008.

I am trying to track messages that were received by a particular user and am unable to get any results.  I am able to see items sent by that user through message tracking but when I change the Event ID to RECEIVE no results are displayed.  Am I missing something?

Hi,
Can you please broaden your search by increasing the time stamps to maybe 3-4 days and also the server.
This is just to confirm, if user actually did receive anything during ur current time slot or is there actually an issue
Cheers

I just went back a week on my own account and still didn't get any results.  I used my account so I could be sure to use an account I knew had received mail recently.

I just noticed I am also getting an error saying "An internal processing error caused the search to fail".

Also looking in my event tracking logs, it looks like its only logging messages with event id "SUBMIT" and nothing else.

[PS] C:\Windows\System32>get-messagetrackinglog -Recipients:user@mydomain.com -EventID "RECEIVE" -Start "4/1/2009 11:15:00 AM" -End "4/2/2009 11:25:00

Get-MessageTrackingLog : An internal processing error caused the search to fail

At line:1 char:23

Hi
So you are confirming that you are able to run this command wihtout any errors without RECEIVE parameter. Could be due to log corruption. I would do the folllowing:
  • Disable MT on Server and stop the services (Exchange Transport Log Search |  Transport | Mail Submission)
  • Rename the last message tracking log file or move to another location
  • Start the services (Exchange Transport Log Search |  Transport | Mail Submission)
  • Enable MT on the server
Now let is generate and try. Let me know
