If you run exmon on the exchange server it will give you a list of all users and their io and data sent etc.. http://www.microsoft.com/download/en/details.aspx?displaylang=en&id=11461

You can import the Log file straight into Excel then create a Pivot Table to show you the count of activities for a given source address.  A bit crude, but will give you an indication of where the load is coming from.

Hope this helps

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

If you have a ton of mail sitting in your outbound queues, please have a read of my article and figure out which account is being abused:

You can empty the queues quickly if you are under attack with aquadmcli.exe:

i have the postmaster@mydomain.com problem
i keep trying to follow the direction, but when i go to smtp, and the properties of default smtp virtual server the general tab, and the advanced button. then i edit the ip address of my server, and check, apply sender filter, apply recipient filter, apply connection filter and apply sender id filter. just to cover my bases, i always get the warning
sender id filter must be configured globally on the message delivery property pages. go to the message delivery object's pages under the global settings to configure sender id filtering.
then i go there and i select
delete
