Pulling Exchange 2007 Site Stats

We have a single instance of Exchange 2007 that supports our European sites. This consists of about 1,500 users, spead out between 2 sites in the UK, 1 in France and 2 in Italy.

The data centre & Exchange servers sit in the UK. We have 4 Exchange 2007 servers, 2 clustered database servers, and 2 client access/transport servers setup as Network Load balance. The storage groups are setup to group users by last name initial, i.e. 'A-B-C users', 'D-E-F users', 'G-H-I users' etc, so each storage group contains a mix of users from all sites. Users are split in AD, into OUs for each site, i.e.
domain.com > 
            London >
                  Users
            Edinburgh >
                  Users
            Paris >
                  Users
            Rome >
                  Users
            Milan >
                  Users

We've been asked by the Site GM of France to pull the total send/receive stats for all users in the whole of France over a month period.

As far as I know, there is no way to do this in Exchange, as Exchange isn't aware of the OUs the users are in, and as all users send through the single instance, have the same domain suffix, and are mixed throughout the storage groups. So we won't be able to generate a report showing how many emails were sent/received by all French users?

Is there an easy way of doing this?

Exchange doesn't store that information by default anyway. The only place that information is stored is in Message Tracking, which only stores 14 days by default. Lots of tools can process the Message Tracking logs, and those will often be able to query the domain to help sort the users. However if you don't have the logs then you don't have the raw data to process.

Thanks for the info. I think I'll tell the site GM that it's not possible as Exchange doesn't store this information, and if they want to query the logs, then they'll need to provide capital for the software/tool + a headcount to do it!
