Customer has asked me for details of emails received from a particular date. Trouble is when I run the get-messagetrackinglog command all I'm getting is last 30 days.

Pretty sure we set logging to 90 days? Isnt this the default?

Do the message track log contains log dated 90 days ago?

I think the default is 1 months. You run get-transportconfig to get the details.

Ah that seems to be producing more results - looking at all the server now not just one.

One final question - Im looking at incoming emails, is is possible to flag which ones had attachments?
