Can anybody advise on a convenient way to examine the Exchange 2013 protocol logs?

In particular, I'd like to be able to easily examine particular SMTP sessions to see what has happened when message delivery has been attempted. I can then know if the recipient's mail server has accepted the message.

Cheers.

convenient way? i am not sure how much convenient you want to read logs

anyway, if the email deliver/submit successfully (even if the email is going to be bounced back),  you don't even need to read protocol logs. you just need to read transaction logs.

so what is your real issue?
