Exchange 2007 Query

Hello,

I need to query a specific mailbox in Exchange 2007.  I need to go back one month and retrieve the header information for all emails from and to this user, and export it to a CSV.  Something like:

Date | From | To | Subject

I imagine this is possible using PowerShell, but that is not my forte.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you!

I assume it would have to be something like this:

1. List mails from specific user
Get-TransportServer  | Get-MessageTrackinglog -Start "mm/dd/yyy 00:00:00" -Sender "user@domain.com" | Select TimeStamp,Sender,Recipients,MessageSubject |Export-Csv "C:\Path\To\file.csv"

2. List mails sent to specific user
Get-TransportServer  | Get-MessageTrackinglog -Start "mm/dd/yyy 00:00:00" -Recipients "user@domain.com" | Select TimeStamp,Sender,Recipients,MessageSubject |Export-Csv "C:\Path\To\file.csv"

What these commands do is listing all existing HubTransport Servers in your Exchange Organization, and query them for the information you specify.

jparedis,

Thank you very much!  This is almost perfect, except that all the recipients come back as "System.String[]".  Have I entered something incorrectly?

OK.  Got it.  I had to change 'Recipients' to {$_.Recipients}

Thanks again jparedis!
