Bandwidth and traffic monitor recommendations

Does anyone have any recommendations for a utility that will tell me in real time what it moving in and out of my Exchange server (or perhaps something on Exchange that I just don't know about.)  Environment is Exchange 2003 and a SonicWall TZ270 and SonicWall ViewPoint.  ViewPoint is great for telling me a lot about what happened yesterday and over a range of days, but I'm looking for more immediate info.  Especially interested in anything that will tell me if one or more of my clients is surreptiously sending spam, unknown even to the client users.

How do you know if your security is working?

Protecting your business doesn’t have to mean sifting through endless alerts and notifications. With WatchGuard Total Security Suite, you can feel confident that your business is secure, meaning you can get back to the things that have been sitting on your to-do list.

Imran999.   Also, I have spam filters for incoming.   How would that work for outgoing?

To imran999.  Would this be something I would use instead of my SonicWall appliance?

To luc_roy:  I printed the link and don't see anything about it being able to report on outgoing message traffic, but maybe it does that. That is, which outbound email emssages originated from which machine or IP address.  Even just a count would be good .  Does it?
