Hi Guys,

Is there any reason why the script get-messagetrackinglog can only returns the email traffic of maximum 2 weeks not the whole month or years ?
get-messagetrackinglog -Server ExHub01 -Sender "tania@anjinglucu.com" -ResultSize Unlimited | select-object Timestamp, sender, RecipientCount, totalbytes | ft -AutoSize -Wrap

You'd kill the server if you did that. :P

Even if you increased the size of the directory, it would take a long time for the cmdlet to review that much data.

As akhater said, it's too late but if you had been backing up the server, you will have all these logs from the last year.
