Find out if my email reached out its destination

Hi Guys,

Is there anyway I could see on my exchange that an email reaches out its destination?
internal user (Exchange) to Gmail account.
I lunched the tracking log explorer and ran the command "Get-Messagetrackinglog" but I don't know which parameters to look at that could say my email went out successfully.


thank you

AFAIK you can only track that the message left your server.  You can do this from PS or from the Exchange Management Console - toolbox - message tracking.  You can request delivery and or read receipts when composing the message but the recipient does not have to allow the response.

Message tracking log will show that the email had been passed out Internet from internal server. It doesn't show the email reach recipient successfully.

Here is example:

Get-MessageTrackingLog -Server Mailbox01 -Start "03/13/2013 09:00:00" -End "03/15/2013 17:00:00" -Sender "john@contoso.com"

I see I'll try PS command line above which should be the same as EMC->toolbox-> TrackingLogExplorer right?

Thank you guys.

The question was can the poster determine if the message was received.  The answer given is no.  That IS the answer so points should be awarded.
