exchange delivery log

Hi, I am using Exchange2013 on Windows Server 2012 R2.
I would like to get confirmation of a specific message.
I can't find a powershell / exchange console command useful to get this.
I mean, if I use:

C:\Windows\system32>Get-MessageTrackingLog -sender some_sender@domain.com  -recipients some_recipient@recipientdomain.com

I only get this:

RECEIVE  STORE... some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
SUBMIT   STORE... some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
HARED... SMTP     some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
RECEIVE  SMTP     some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
AGENT... AGENT    some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
TRANSFER ROUTING  some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 
SEND     SMTP     some_sender@domain.com              {some_recipient@recipientdomain.com}               Documentazione 

Open in new window

but I have no evidence that remote SMTP got my mail, remote message ID, and so on.
How can I find this?

thank you!

Well there is no feature on exchange delivery about the acceptance of email by remote SMTP server . It will show only logs for its own delivery.
If email is sent out from your organization, exchange will show the SMTP logs for outbound but it wont show the logs for if that is delivered or not. No mail systems have this functionality so for.

I totally disagree.

postfix, qmail, sendmail, whatever, can tell you something like:

Jun 13 17:26:08 smtp1 postfix/smtp[26694]: 9DEEA501CBE: to=<XXXXXXXXX@domain.com>, relay=SOME_REMOTE_MAILSERVER[111.22.333.44]:25, delay=0.35, delays=0.11/0/0.01/0.23, dsn=2.0.0, status=sent (250 2.0.0 Ok: queued as B4BA222624)

Open in new window


So you can assume that remote MTA (SOME_REMOTE_MAILSERVER or 111.22.333.44) got your message (status: 250 OK).
B4BA222624 is mail's id on remote MTA.

I am bit shocked if Exchange cannot log such information

well exchange dont log that informatiom .. what you have pasted doesnt comfirm if remote server mail has got your email. it is saying that your email was sent and its maessage from your server itself. but not from remote server

Enable read receipt option when sending mail. That will confirm you, if user received your mail or not.

hi Gaurav Singh,

indeed, that log does indicate that remote server got the message.

Anyway, it is ok. Exchange cannot do this.
I am bit shocked, anyway :)
