create this logparser script

@echo off

del smtp2.txt

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Log Parser 2.2\logparser.exe" "SELECT CASE TO_INT( SUBSTR(DATA,0,3)) when NULL then 0 else TO_INT( SUBSTR(DATA,0,3)) END AS RemoteHostReturnCode, data, count (*) AS hits FROM D:\Progra~1\Microsoft\Exchan~1\V14\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpSend\SEND*.log WHERE RemoteHostReturnCode > 400 AND context <> 'Certificate thumbprint' AND context <> 'sending message' GROUP BY RemoteHostReturnCode, data ORDER BY hits DESC" -i:CSV -nSkipLines:4 -o:w3c >c:\util\smtp2.txt

This was running on my exchange 2007 enterprise server and once in awhile I had this same issue.

The output show this

Press a key...


This script is run automatically once a week vi task manager.

But it stops on "Press a key"   I have to Kill the Process in order for it to end.

It ran ok for about two weeks now it has not

It reads the SMTP SEND log file  

A bad record?

Anyway in logparser to bypass this?

Try adding the -q:ON and / or -iw:ON switches. See the LogParser help for Global Switches:
@echo off

del smtp2.txt

"C:\Program Files (x86)\Log Parser 2.2\logparser.exe" "SELECT CASE TO_INT( SUBSTR(DATA,0,3)) when NULL then 0 else TO_INT( SUBSTR(DATA,0,3)) END AS RemoteHostReturnCode, data, count (*) AS hits FROM D:\Progra~1\Microsoft\Exchan~1\V14\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpSend\SEND*.log WHERE RemoteHostReturnCode > 400 AND context <> 'Certificate thumbprint' AND context <> 'sending message' GROUP BY RemoteHostReturnCode, data ORDER BY hits DESC" -q:ON -iw:ON -i:CSV -nSkipLines:4 -o:w3c >c:\util\smtp2.txt
