message tracking

How do I track the message with EMC exchange 2010?
I use to be able to run detailed reports with date /time range/ to from etc. back in EMCX 2000
Now I have to specify mailbox, email to and from but no flexibility at all. What is the best way get max options on filtering email logs? Say find automatic delivery confirmation which usually have empty sender>

I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The most flexibility you will have is through the Exchange Management Shell. There are all the options available to do specific searches etc.

Syntax is below...

Get-MessageTrackingLog -Server <HT Server> -Start "04/01/2015 12:00AM" -End "04/02/2015 4:00PM" -Sender -Recipient | ft

Open in new window

For a full list of options and more examples you can use the

Get all failed/undeliverable emails:

Get-Messagetrackinglog -Recipients: -EventID “FAIL” -Start “5/4/2011 9:00:00 AM” -End “5/10/2011 5:00:00 PM” |ft Timestamp, Source, Sender, Recipients, MessageSubject >>C:\output.txt

   Get all success emails

Get-Messagetrackinglog -Recipients: -EventID “RECEIVE” -Start “5/4/2011 9:00:00 AM” -End “5/10/2011 5:00:00 PM” |ft Timestamp, Source, Sender, Recipients, MessageSubject >>C:\output.txt

This will give you the output in the form:

Source “SMTP” means it’s an external email and “STOREDRIVER” means processed internally
