Exchange 2013 - Receive connectors


  • Hello,

    I created a few receive connectors and add some servers inside. I tried to view logs with Log Parser but I don't view any email which is sent with my new connectors. In the logs I only see for the default connector myserver\Default myserver.

    Normaly if any server is specified in a connector it must use it to send email. Right?

    Anyone has any idea?

  • Hi,

    Verbose is now enabled for all, but I don't see any of my connectors be used.

  • Thank you Oleg but I can see my receive or send connectors. If I open with Log Parser Studio the log files from Message Tracking folder and do a search for log type EELOG, I only see my default receive connector to be use.

    Do I miss something?

    If I have a look to the message tracking logs, for the most emails the ConnectorId is blank.

    How can this be possible?

  • Are you searching for emails that has been sent out or received?

    Are you sure you are searching in correct log?
