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.

Why spend so long doing email signature updates?

Do you spend loads of your time carrying out email signature updates? Not very interesting are they? Don’t let signature updates get you down. Let Exclaimer Cloud - Signatures for Office 365 make managing email signatures a breeze.

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.
