Diagnosing outbound email in Exchange 2010

Learning exchange 2010 I would like to test/check/diagnose any outbound email failure. (Such as in an event email fails to send out or connect to the recipient) In linux you can run a sendmail -v or exim -v and actually watch it send out an email with a verbose output.

How can you accomplish this in exchange? I have done a little searching and found you can turn on logging but this could be problematic with thousands of users.

There isn't an equivilent in Exchange that I am aware of.
Usually with Exchange you wait to see what the SMTP failure reason is, or look at the queue viewer, which should show you the SMTP error message.

As Simon said there isnt such a feature in Exchange but only ways are to check Header after email is reached to Recipient or wait for NDR or message tracking.

You can try checking with "Mail flow troubleshooter" or other options in toolbox
