View emails being sent through Exchange 2003 server

Hi
Is there a way to view outgoing email queue in Exchnage 2003, if not is there a utility out there.  We have this one customer who always complains about slow email sending out to the web and we oftern find out it's due to a user sending a large file to hundreds of users.  i would like to be able to see this then show the customer why the system is slow sending emails.

Any ideas?

Thanks

There is a very powerful command line tool via Microsoft called AQADMCLI to view messages in queues, and kill certain emails if needed. I have used it when we've had an email flood.

I have a little batch file I keep on my Exchange server(s) that calls AQADMCLI. It checks for the number of emails over 10MBs, 1MB, then 100K. You could easily change those numbers to check for anything over 50MBs.

Check-Queues.bat
  c:\aqadmcli "msgaction ma=COUNT,flags=SIZE,size=10000000"
  c:\aqadmcli "msgaction ma=COUNT,flags=SIZE,size=1000000"
  c:\aqadmcli "msgaction ma=COUNT,flags=SIZE,size=100000"
  pause
