Log in Exchange 2013

Hi, I would like to search message log in my Exchange 2013, specifically I need to track sender smtp's ip address.
Is there a way to open a log file as in "tail -f /var/log/maillog" (Linux)?
I mean, in order to see log in real time.
Thank you very much

First you have to make sure you have logging enabled and enough details are logged (set to higher level if not). After that's done, you can use a free program like https://www.baremetalsoft.com/baretail/ and open the current incoming smtp log file (which is a daily file).

Hi, I already have WinTail, I think it is almost the same.

For logs, do you refer to:

C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V15\TransportRoles\Logs\MessageTracking
?

In such folder, most recent file is 2017, so I assume logs are in a different place.. thank you
