Exchange 2010 message tracking...

sucks!

When I first saw this being used I was quite interested about what it could do but since actually using it Im still interested on what it can actually do... because it doesnt seem like it can do much at all!

All I want to do is be able to search through message tracking info see what users have received what emails and be able to specify times like in Exchange 2003 and 2007 to some extent. Can this be done? As far as I can see I can only search message tracking if I have the full email address of the sender and it doesn't allow me to filter out days/times

to filter out days you use the Start and End

-Start "8/17/2010 5:00 AM" -End "8/17/2010 11:00 AM"

presumably this is done in the Exchange Shell and not in the OWA GUI?

Can you do wildcard searches for domains? Like looking for any emails from *@microsoft.com or something?

I can't seem to bring up the Exchange 2007 style message tracking anywhere... it just gives me the new 2010 Delivery Report crap :( making me sad panda!

you could always use
Get-MessageTrackingLog -Server EX2010 -Start "8/16/2010 12:00PM" -End "8/17/2010 12:00 PM" | Where { $_.Sender -like "endital*" }

Turns out the usual 2007 style message tracking was somewhere else too as well as the new 2010 delivery reports tracking thing! Doh!

In 2010 the Mail Flow tool called 'Message Tracking' takes you the web delivery reports tool done from OWA where as the 'Tracking Log Explorer' is what I would consider 'Message Tracking'

Don't know why they have to rename things to confuse me! :( lol
