How to view emails in a GFI Database

Hi all,

I am trying to find out how many incoming/outgoing emails are in a particular GFI Mail Archiver database we have but i would like to complete this at the SQL level.  The reason being that mounting and unmounting databases within GFI is time consuming.

Does anyone know how to query a database for this type of information?  I am unfamiliar with SQL queries as well so all help is greatly appreciated

We are running SQL 2005 R4 on Windows 2008 R2 Standard

Kind Regards,

Hi BCSITS,
The following is the type of thing you will have to do in SQL(SQL Server Management Studio):

SELECT
SUM(CASE WHEN p.Direction = 1 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) [Incoming_Count]
,SUM(CASE WHEN p.Direction = 2 THEN 1 ELSE 0 END) [Outgoing_Count] 
FROM dbo.meces_processed p
WHERE [datetime] BETWEEN '2013-12-01' AND '2013-12-31'
