Hi,
We mistakenly added a transport rule that was set to silently drop mail. It was in operation for a few hours.
We now want to track what mails were dropped by the rule. Is there any way, using message tracking or logs?
Note that we didn't set add an action to log an event each time it was triggered.

If you remember the date and time in which this transport rule was enabled you can run the get-messagetrackinglog cmdlet to find out emails transactions during that time.
You will have to go through the messages displayed in the result and what eventid it shows for the dropped emails. I am sure for the dropped emails it wont show receive it will show something else rather it may show fail but not sure about it.

Once you get the uncommon eventid through the message tracking logs then you can filter the search again using the same date/time and event id.
