Hi
Just wondering if anyone can tell me of soe decent software out there that can give me some good stats on my exchange.

I'd like to know easily things for example

How mail mails currently processing either in our out and who from to?
How many mails sent today, last hour that kind of thing
What size they were

Any cool dashboard tools out there like that?


Thanks

Message Tracking gives you the core content, most tools will query those logs.
I have a list of the main players in this scope here:

If you have skills in database tasks and then creating reports then you do things yourself using LogParser, but you would have to develop it.

You could also look at this tool:

I tried the last script you mention which looks good. But when i run it i can see red text behind the GUI that says "The term get-Exchangeserver is not recognised as the name of a cmdlet"
any ideas?

It isn't my script, so I cannot really help with that.
Did you run it from an Exchange Management Shell?

Problems using Powershell and Active Directory?

Managing Active Directory does not always have to be complicated.  If you are spending more time trying instead of doing, then it's time to look at something else. For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why

Not Powershell, EMS, they are different, as EMS includes the Exchange commands, which PowerShell doesn't by default.
