Exchange 2010 Message Delivery Reports

I need to see all of the messages sent to a specific user going back several months. The Message Delivery Reports only go back two weeks. Is there a way to go back further than two weeks? Is there a way to search by date range?

By default, the maximum size for the whole message tracking log directory is 250 MB. Circular logging deletes the oldest message tracking log files when either a message tracking log file reaches its specified maximum age, or the message tracking log directory reaches its specified maximum size.

By default, the maximum age for any message tracking log file is 30 days. Circular logging deletes the oldest message tracking log files if the message tracking log directory reaches its specified maximum size or a message tracking log file reaches its specified maximum age.

So i hope you got answer why you can not view old reports

I suppose you need to check the settings on the server if it corresponds with the two weeks
try using (in exchange shell)

Get-MailboxServer <yourservername> | fl messagetracking*

you should look for the messagetrackinglogmaxage value, as far as i know it should be 30days default

to change this value use:

Set-MailboxServer <yourservername> -MessageTrackingLogMaxAge <dd.hh:mm:ss>

Answer to this question is not possible without log backup. If you have tracking log backup for that month, you can parse it.

Using the Get-MailboxServer <yourservername> | fl messagetracking* command, I was able to look up the settings for message tracking. It is set to 30 days and 1000 MB maximum.

I'm still not sure why the delivery report is limited to the last two weeks. I did not see a way to expand it to the last 30 days.
