Unidentified traffic to Exchange 2007 mail server ?


I'm running Exchange 2007 on Windows 2003 R2 SP2 64 bit. And I noticed regular inbound traffic to the email server. By the firewall logs it's consumed by SMTP in the mail server.

How can I handle this situation?

I'm sorry if I don't quite understand your question.  There is supposed to be regular inbound traffic to the mail server on the SMTP port.  That is how mail is transferred.

oh yah I have missed the interesting part of it :p apology... ! I was monitoring it for past 12 hours and average it's has 1 Mbps inbound traffic.. we don't have that much of email traffic ..

so how do we analyze this traffic on SMTP ?
