Our ISP is blocking our outbound email because they are saying that we are reaching our quota of 600mb per hour. How can I tell what mail is being sent and see the history of attachments and MB used?

for exchnage 2007 (sorry you didn't say version)

this takes some doing, a good start could be get the total volume of emails being sent to outside of your domain/organisation ina  given period?

change the "dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss" for start and end times to show you the amount of emails being sent in a single day?

(get-messagetrackinglog -server hubtrandportservername  -start "dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss" -end "dd/mm/yyyy hh:mm:ss" -resultsize 100000|where {$_.recipients -ne "*@yourdomain.com"}).count

Is this bandwidth only email?  Seems like you would be using the internet, some people may be streaming music or videos, etc.

Go into Exchange Server manager and expand tools and click on message tracking centre. Select your server on the server button and choose a time scale, then click find now. It will show all email in and out for that given time frame. You can right click on the header for more info such as attachement sizes etc.
