There are some ways to achieve this.
1.You can use Perfmon (Performance Monitor tool) to achieve this
Read the article below to find out how to do this:

2.Third party solution called Messagestats from Quest

3.Message Tracking in Exchange is also an option but not a strong one

hii,

apart from Message Tracking there is no other option in Exchange that can give you a report that you want but there are few tools that you need to buy to make your life simpler

i think you have to use 3rd party software to achieve this like Gfi mail essential it has reporting tool tell you about no of email sent or recieved every day or during period of time and generate report for one user.
there is also Quest MessageStats program it can do the same job

Most solutions will use message tracking. That contains most of the information that you need. Promodag have a solution that will allow you to pull the logs in to an Access Database, if you have those skills.

Quest Message Stats is very good, but very expensive. Not sure what the link to it is above, this is the actual source: http://www.quest.com/messagestats/

Another product is Mail Detective.

Perfmon isn't that great, because it is reset when the server or services are restarted.
