Exchange Mgmt Shell get-messagetrackinglog: Need it to output more fields.

I need more output from get-messagetrackinglog.  If I use the Message Tracking Assistant in the Exchange Management Console to get output, it has several columns like IP address, recipient, timestamp, etc.  But if I run the command in the shell, I only get like 3 rows of info.  How can I specify which columns I want or get all of them?

I wear a lot of hats...

"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.

Try the following

Get-MessageTrackingLog -EventID "DELIVER" -Start "01/01/2012 12:00:00 AM" -End "01/22/2012 2:00:00 PM" -ResultSize unlimited | where {[string]$_.sender -match ""} | select timestamp, eventid, source, messagesubject, sender, {$_.recipients}, totalbytes
Get-MessageTrackinglog -eventid [ send/receive/store..] -sender -start ["start date/time"] -end ["end date/time"] | select-object sender,{$_.recipients},clientip,serverip,subject...] | export-csv messagelog.csv

If you "pipe" the command (i.e. the | key on your keyboard - Shift + (left of Z) on my British layout) to the "format-list" command, you see a list of all the attributes for each record.

e.g. get-messagetrackinglog | format-list

An equivalent for format-list, known as an alias, is "FL".

Identify the fields you want to extract, then, as netballi points out above, use the select command in a pipe to select just those fields. You can pipe the resulting output to format-table, or FT, to display the results in a tabulated form.

e.g. get-messagetrackinglog | select <parameter list separated by commas> | format-table

Alternatively, you can pass the parameter list to format-table directly:

get-messagetrackinglog | format-table <parameter list>

Any filters you need to perform can still be made on Get-MessageTrackingLog before the pipe "|" symbol, such as start or end dates to search for, or the usual -resultsize unlimited argument to ensure you are not restricted to a particular number of rows.
