Exchange (2010) mail flow logs RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi,

     

    From where I can see logs about individual mails (SBS2011)? Where did they come from and so on. Detailed info about mails.

     

    We had SBS2003 and in that server there was two different locations with two slightly different logs about email detailed info. I supposed there is two different logs in SBS2011 also..?

    The SMTP protocol logs would show you what happens between the sending
    and receiving SMTP client and server. The Message tracking logs would
    provide you details about the delivery of the message once it's been
    accepted.

  • Hi
       I can’t determine whether  SBS2011 is the same as exchange 2010.
       SMTP log
       C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpSend
       Message track log
       C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Logs\MessageTracking directory

  • Yes, I can confirm that log location would be "C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\v14\TransportRoles\Logs" in SBS 2011 also.

  • Yes, all the logs are found from there.

     

    I would also like to point out that in Exchange Management Console / Toolbox, there are some mail flow tools to view mail logs in a bit more easier and structured way.

     

    Thank you all for you'r help!
