    How can I make a tracking of sent messages, for the size of the message?.

    I have used the get-messagetrackinglog but only gives the sender, timestamp,recipients,messagesubject,eventid, I need the message size too.

  • Try using TotalBytes too

  • Mmm always gives a diferent result, even if I send the same message again.

    If I send a message with an attachment of 50kb=51200bytes the totalbytes gives me the result of 75290.

    And if I send it again return me 75508

    Do you know why are those differences?

    The complete cmdlet that I use is

    [PS] C:\Windows\system32>Get-ExchangeServer | get-messagetrackinglog  -recipient myaccount@mysite.com -Start "12/14/201
    1 07:00 pm" -End "12/14/2011 07:50 pm" |fl sender,timestamp,recipients,messagesubject, eventid,totalbytes

    But its a very good approach

    Thanks Sukh

  • Hi there,

    Exchange message tracking does not include message size tracking. I would suggest you use the message size limit to control the sent messages' size.
