Exchange 2003 Question

We had an instance wherein an application suffered from a coding loop issue that sent out an email to external recipients that clogged our network for 15-20 minutes. The sender name is reply-application.domain.com. Is there a way to find out from Exchange servers logs to determine what/how many emails were sent out by this particular sender?

Hello,

If were a bit of emails you must use Message Tracking Center (in Exchange System Manager).
If were a lot of emails you could use "LogParser" for parse Exchange Logs (in case if Message tracking in enabled in Properties of your Exchange server).
But this way very difficult, because you need make up correct SQL query.

If you write me more information, I'll try to help you with SQL.

Hi,

Still if you are unable to get the details of the message as well as IIS logs(if any), then I can recommend you to try in a utility which has the capacity to give the detailed reports for the messages sent by that particular sender to the users both within and outside the organisation. If you want then I can suggest a few of these tools
