I am trying to get a total count of all emails that have been sent or received through my exchange 2007 server and I just want to look at it for 1 day. Can you recommend the best way to get this info. I tried to use perfmon on the exchange 2007 server by adding a monitor but it didn't collect any data. Can someone tell me a good shell command that will give me this by using the messagetrackinglog?

I ran the MSExchange Transport SMTPReceive and smtpsend and selected total received and total sent. I tried your code above but it doesn't give me anything back.

Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

I think I got the perfmon to work this time. Not sure why it didn't take the first time since i went through same process. Anyway, I'll just wait to see what kind of results I get. Thanks for the help.
