I was running some searches agains our messsage tracking logs using the get-messagetrackinglog cmdlet.  When I was running get-messagetrackinglog -EventID "SEND" -ResultSize unlimited -Start "03/01/2014 00:00:00 AM" -END "03/27/2014 11:59:00 PM" the command returned no results.  When running get-messagetrackinglog -EventID "SUBMIT" -ResultSize unlimited -Start "03/01/2014 00:00:00 AM" -END "03/27/2014 11:59:00 PM" I get plenty of results.  Is there a reason why there would be no results for an eventid of send?

We do route all mail through a thirdparty who provides spam filtering and archiving for business continuity.

when emails are using MAPI (typically Outlook or MAPICDO) to send email, it is consider submit (to exchange server) not send

eventid Send is for someone to use the telnet protocol to telnet on port 25 and send an email.

so you route all email is to thirdparty usually trigger when a user submit an email .. so you won't see much send.


to test this,
you can telnet to <exchangeserver> 25 and try to send an email

then your messagetrackinglogs will show up a eventid send
