What to look for with SMTP Logs for Apps being unable to relay?

All,

2 things:

1. I'm going here to review the SMTP Logs on our Internal 2003 Bridgehead servers:
"C:\WINDOWS\system32\LogFiles\SMTPSVC1"
I know the IP of one the applications yesterday that was having issues sending emails off of one the Bridgehead servers.  I had to add the IP to the Allowed Relay List to resolve it.  
What would be the string to search against within the Logs to see the server attempting to use anonymous smtp to send emails and it fails?

2. If there is such a string to search against, could there be a script out there that would pull all the items from the log files and dump it to a new .txt file so I'm not searching each server manually?

Thanks
