Hi,
I'm trying to look at the message logs on exchange 2010 for 2013, but all I can see are the logs from 2014.  Do you know  how I can see the 2013 logs?
Thanks.

SMTP logs are at C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpSend
Message tracking logs are at C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Logs\MessageTracking directory

Could they be overwritten? If you've been backing up those locations, you might be able to "see" them.

By default, tracking logs are deleted after 30 days, so if you're looking for something from last year, you may be out of luck. Unless you have backups of that period that include the folders where these logs are stored.

They could have been overwritten.  I looked at the logs and I can only see 2014 logs there as well.  I guess 'll see if I can pull them from a backup.
