Mail log of Exchange server RRS feed

  • Question

  • hello,

    Is there a way I can export the mail log from the exchange server ?

    I am trying to figure out the active mail boxes. Couple of mail boxes in the system have mail forwarding etc.. in place hence the getmailbox command can show me last login but it can not confirm if the account is still active or not i.e. someone is sending the e-mails to a particular mail address.

    Is there a way i can do that.

    Thanks.

    The message tracking logs are just text files. You can copy them
    wherever you like.
