I see my Exchange 2003 SMTP logs growing fast at certain times of the day. How can I tell what messages are being sent and the size of the messages? I see the log files but is there a way to easily read the logs to tell what is happening?

Look on the outbound queues?

I don't see much going on in the outbound queues? I think most of the SMTP is internal traffic. Would the outbound queues show that?

Hello,

Use message tracking to see what is going on during a specific time period. The Message Tracking cneter can be found in ESM under Tools.

The message does show what messages are coming into the system but I see grown in log files that does not seem to match the size of message coming in and out of the system.
