use the performance monitor counter

MSExchangeMTA Inbound Bytes Total

You can also get an idea as to the growth rates of your mail stores by graphing the output of MSExchangeIs Mailbox Store event ID 1221 from the application log - this will show you the amount of whitespace available in each store. By mapping this over several weeks you will be able to see the average amounts of data coming into your store as well as the growth trends for each store

You also need to take the physical size of the .edb file into account as well once the amount of whitespace free shrinks - just to make certain you are getting the correct picture

physical size - whitespace == amount of live data in the store

map that and you should have all the info you require

but right off the bat, you should be able to get a bit of an idea just by mapping the output of the historical 1221 events - you just won't be able to get the full picture because you won't have the physical size of teh .edb files to add to the graph
