My manager was asking if there was any way to generate two "reports" from our exchange server. Ideally he would like a simple count of emails that were sent and received in a day. Something simple like

9/22/2010
Sent: 50,000
Received: 15,000

I dont know if this is possibly natively with exchange and powershell so Im hoping someone may know.

I generate the same report using the following PowerShell script:

#get a list of all hub servers (use the @() syntax so it will treat it as
#an array even if there is only one hub server)
$Hubs = @(Get-TransportServer)

#Get today's date for the output file
$date = ( get-date ).ToString('MM/dd/yyyy')

#Create the output file
$Out = "c:\temp\MsgCount.txt"

#Clear your counter variables
$Sent = 0
$Sent1 = 0
$Rcvd = 0
$Rcvd1 = 0

#Get today's date/time for the message logs
$EDate = get-date -uFormat '%D %r'

#Get date/time for the last 24 hours
$SDate = (get-date (get-date).AddDays(-1) -uformat '%D %r')

#go through each hub and count the messages for the Sent and Receive EventIDs.
#***NOTE*** Receive may or may not be what you are looking for. You can also
#try it with the Deliver EventID

foreach ($Hub in $Hubs)
{
      #count Sent messages
      $msg = @(get-messagetrackinglog -Server $Hub -EventID "Send" -Start "$SDate" -End "$EDate" -ResultSize Unlimited)
      $Sent1 = $msg.Count
      #add to total for all Hub servers
      $Sent = $Sent + $Sent1
      
      #Count received messages
      $msg2 = @(get-messagetrackinglog -Server $Hub -EventID "Receive" -Start "$SDate" -End "$EDate" -ResultSize Unlimited)
      $Rcvd1 = $msg2.Count
      #add to total for all hub servers
      $Rcvd = $Rcvd + $Rcvd1
}      

#Create your output and write it to the output file
out-File $Out -InputObject $date
$inp = "Sent: " + $Sent
out-File $Out -InputObject $inp -Append
$inp2 = "Received: " + $Rcvd
out-File $Out -InputObject $inp2 -Append

# Send Email with attached output file
Function Send-Mail
{
 $mail = New-Object Net.Mail.MailMessage
#Specify what email address to send the report from
 $mail.From  = "MsgReport@domain.com"
#Specify the recipient's email address
 $mail.To.Add("bossesEmail@domain.com")
 $mail.Subject = "Daily Message Count"
 $mail.Body = "Script generated report."
 $Attachment = New-Object Net.Mail.Attachment($Out)
 $mail.Attachments.Add($Attachment)
 $smtp = New-Object Net.Mail.SmtpClient
#Specify you SMTP Server
 $smtp.Host = "SMTPServer.domain.com"
 $smtp.Port = "25"
 $smtp.Send($mail)
}
