Extracting mailbox information from Exchange

Hello Experts

Is there an application that is able to provide a detailed list of all mail receive by and sent from a certain Exchange mailbox?

I know Exchange has various tools but these tools aren't able to provide the information we require.

My boss has requested that I produce a report on 6 mailboxes that show detail information like; sender, date received/sent and subject; this report needs to show both internal and export mail.

Your assistance is appreciated.

Try Quest message stat. You can run the trial version for limited period and get the reports based on it.

Good luck

Seems like Promodag is what I need, will give it a try.

@shabarinath

Tried to run MesageStat, but it took my Exchange down, not very easy to get going. Thanks anyway.

@jjdurrant

Exporting to pst is not what I'm looking to do, need to run a report about incoming and outgoing mail for a 3 month basis.

Great, thanks for the update and let us know how things progress.

Promodag definitly did the trick, looks like a great tool! Do you know if it's possible to edit/create reports?

Commented:
I don't know about full blown creation, but you can do filters etc.  Here is s link to the help file http://www.promodag.com/support/OnlineHelp/Repex.htm which will get you further along, but you may just want to send them an email to sales and support and pick their brain or even call their toll free number listed here http://www.promodag.com/promodag/promodag.aspx
