Exchange 2007: Transport Logs

I needed to check our Exchange Transport logs, specifically MessageTracking to see if a user sent an email back in August. However, I cannot find any logs older than November 7th.

How do I increase the amount of days the logs are kept?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

If you are making backups of your exchange with "exchange aware" backup software then the logs are commited and flushed after the backup is completed... That could be the reason the logs are gone?

We are not backing up the logs. We use Backup Exec 2010 with Granular Exchange Backup, but only backup the Information Store.

And system state as well.
when you backup exchange information store the logs get flushed...

That option is not selected. So logs are actually kept for 30 days. We backup exchange weekly. I need to keep logs for at least 120 days. There is plenty of storage available.
