Hi All,

I have a user asking to check  if a email from a sender has arrived to her mailbox because she is not seeing it in Outlook.

I logged on exchange Hub and found the message , The log look like this:

Timestamp               : 4/13/2011 11:34:30 AM
ClientIp                :
ClientHostname          :
ServerIp                :
ServerHostname          : Hub
SourceContext           : 08CDA0CE4F34C48E;2011-04-13T15:34:30.169Z;0
ConnectorId             : HUB\
Source                  : SMTP
EventId                 : RECEIVE
InternalMessageId       : 3024014
MessageId               : <>
Recipients              : {john@abc.local}
RecipientStatus         : {}
TotalBytes              : 11405
RecipientCount          : 1
RelatedRecipientAddress :
Reference               :
MessageSubject          : Available for discussion?
Sender                  :
ReturnPath              : john@testcom
MessageInfo             : 10I:

Question is, is there an indication in the log that shows the mail has been delivered? if i am looking at the wrong tracking log, please advise where i should go for confirmation.

    Accepted Solution

    run a search for the MessageId that you've found from the Receive Log in message tracking. and look for DELIVER. that is the log when a message is delivered to a mailbox.
