  • Hi,

    not in the way you want to see traffic from your SMTP clients. The builtin reports have not these capabilities. It could be possible to create custom SMTP reports with SQL queries if TMg logs into a SQL 2008 Express edition!

  • Hi,

    are you using an internal Mail server or is all SMTP traffic client based to an external mail server? It is not possible to find detailed information about SMTP traffic from single users. You can only monitor the SMTP traffic as an entire unit. You have to use the SMTP logging methods on your Mail Server from your provider or your internal mail server.

  • OK, I understand from your comment, that TMG does not have the capability to general this report :(

    Thanks
