Have you looked the Message Tracker in Exchange 2003 System Manager or does this not give you what you're looking for ?

Well it depends on the details you are after really but the default 'Message Tracking Centre' has alot of details about how many emails with in set time limits, size etc. List will only show 1st 1000 emails in the set time frame, can add size colums etc.
If your looking at amount of data per second try using a network monitoring tool that monitors protcol;
This collection of tools has some nice features;

Can you please download Microsoft Exchange Server User Monitor (EXMON) from following link and check who is sending the SPAM mails ?

Here is link
http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/en/details.aspx?FamilyId=9A49C22E-E0C7-4B7C-ACEF-729D48AF7BC9&displaylang=en

In my case one of the compuetr on the network was infected with virus OR spyware and this infected computer was sending too much spam e-mails to the server
After Research we have downloaded the EXMON on the server and we got the IP Address of the client Machine which was sending too many traffice to exchange server
We have simply removed this machine from network and suddendly Generating of Log Files on the server Reduced
then we have scan the computer and found some virus and spyware.
