In ESM you have a mailflow checker, do not specify a sender nor a reciever. Just check per day week month or whatever you want.

Will it give consolidated report on .

Sent mails:
Size of sent mails:
 Size of biggest mail out:
 Average size out:
 Quantity incoming mails:  
 Average size in :
 Overall quantity :
 Overall size :
Patrick BogersDatacenter platform engineer LindowsCommented:
No it will not, it will only show sended and recieved mails.
To get deeper into what you want you can use a exchange powershell script as provided by MS to help you on your way. The link is here.

I have found following script.

$Localhost = $env:COMPUTERNAME
 #Load Exchange PS Snapin
 If ((Get-PSSnapin | Where-Object {$_.Name -eq “Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010¿} ).name -eq ‘Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010')
 Write-Host “Exchange Snapin is already loaded….”

 Write-Host “Loading Exchange Snapin Please Wait….”; Add-PSSnapin Microsoft.Exchange.Management.PowerShell.E2010
 Write-Host “running…”

$hubs = Get-TransportServer

# Get the start date for the tracking log search
 $Start = (Get-Date -Hour 00 -Minute 00 -Second 00).AddDays(-1)

# Get the end date for the tracking log search
 $End = (Get-Date -Hour 23 -Minute 59 -Second 59).AddDays(-1)

$Datum = $Start.ToShortDateString()

$receive = $hubs | get-messagetrackinglog -Start $Start -End $End -EventID “RECEIVE” -ResultSize Unlimited | select Sender,RecipientCount,TotalBytes,Recipients
 $send = $hubs | get-messagetrackinglog -Start $Start -End $End -EventID “SEND” -ResultSize Unlimited | select Sender,RecipientCount,TotalBytes
 $mreceive = $receive | Measure-Object TotalBytes -maximum -minimum -average -sum
 $msend = $send | Measure-Object TotalBytes -maximum -minimum -average -sum

$anzahl = $mreceive.count + $msend.count
 $volumen = ($mreceive.sum + $msend.sum) / (1024 * 1024)

$volumen = “{0:N2}” -f $volumen + ” MB”

$msendmb = $msend.sum / (1024 * 1024)
 $vsend = “{0:N2}” -f $msendmb + ” MB”
$bigsend = $msend.maximum / (1024 * 1024)
 $avsend = $msend.average / 1024

$bigsendmb = “{0:N2}” -f $bigsend + ” MB”
$avsendkb = “{0:N2}” -f $avsend + ” KB”

$mreceivemb = $mreceive.sum / (1024 * 1024)
 $vreceive = “{0:N2}” -f $mreceivemb + ” MB”
$bigreceive = $mreceive.maximum / (1024 * 1024)
 $avreceive = $mreceive.average / 1024

$bigreceivemb = “{0:N2}” -f $bigreceive + ” MB”
$avreceivekb = “{0:N2}” -f $avreceive + ” KB”

#$senders = $send | Group-Object Sender | Sort-Object Count -Descending
 #$topsender = $senders[0].Name
 #$topsender += $senders[0].Count

#$receivers = $receive | Group-Object Recipients | Sort-Object Count -Descending
 #$topreceiver = $receivers[0]

$computer = gc env:computername
 $obj = new-object psObject

$obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Generated on server:” -Value $Computer
 $obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Date :” -Value $Datum
 $obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Sent mails :” -Value $msend.Count
 $obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Size of sent mails:” -Value $vsend
 $obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Size of biggest mail out:” -value $bigsendmb
 $obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Average size out :” -value $avsendkb
 $obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Quantity incoming mails :” -Value $mreceive.Count
 $obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Size of received mails :” -Value $vreceive

 $obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Average size in :” -value $avreceivekb
 $obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Overall quantity :” -Value $anzahl
 $obj |Add-Member -MemberType noteproperty -Name “Overall size :” -Value $volumen

$out = $Datum + “;” + $msend.count + “;” + $vsend + “;” + $mreceive.count + “;” + $vreceive + “;” + $anzahl + “;” + $volumen
 $out | out-file c:\daily.csv -append -encoding default

function sendmail($body)
 $SmtpClient = new-object system.net.mail.smtpClient
 $MailMessage = New-Object system.net.mail.mailmessage
 $SmtpClient.Host = “YOUR_HT_SERVER”
$mailmessage.from = “Exchange_2010_NoReply@YOURDOMAIN.COM”
 # $mailmessage.CC.add(“CC_RECIPIENT@YOURDOMAIN.COM”)
 $mailmessage.Subject = “Exchange daily message Report $Datum”
$MailMessage.IsBodyHtml = $false
 $mailmessage.Body = $body


$obj = $obj -replace(“@{“,””)
 $obj = $obj -replace(“=”,”:`t”)
 $obj = $obj -replace(“; “,”`n”)
 $obj = $obj -replace(“}”,”`n”)

sendmail $obj

Now how to run this script. Will batch file work or there is some other way to run it.
Patrick BogersDatacenter platform engineer LindowsCommented:
This is an powershell script which you need to call <filename>.ps1 and if i am not mistaken it needs the powershell snapin build into exchange (#Load Exchange PS Snapin)
kapoor_sumeetAuthor Commented:

Is powershell snapin there by default or it will load using this script. Other thing is if you can provide some link on how to run script.
Patrick BogersDatacenter platform engineer LindowsCommented:
By installing Exchange 2007 you also get the exchange toolbox which allows you to run powershell scripts.

Here is a quick guide true on how to use, for example, a mail diagnostics script.
kapoor_sumeetAuthor Commented:

if I run following command on exchange powershell


xyz.ps1 is the script file then it will run script. Is it  the way to run script .

 Please help me I have not used powershell before.
Patrick BogersDatacenter platform engineer LindowsCommented:
Yes that is the way to run a powershell script.
