Message tracking RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have used the ESM in 03 and am transitioning to 2010 and cannot see how to refine my search in the EMC when I want to track messages for a particular use during a specific time frame as was available in 03.

    How can I track messages more efficiently?

  • You may use cmdlet tools in 2010 for efficient message tracking.

    For example, to search the message tracking log for all entries from 06/14/2011 8:00 AM to 06/15/2011 5:00 AM for all FAIL events sent by user@windowsadmin.info, run the following command:

     

    Get-MessageTrackingLog -ResultSize Unlimited -Start "06/14/2011 8:00 AM " -End "06/15/2011 5:00 AM" -EventId "Fail" -Sender "user@windowsadmin.info"

  • Using the Exchange Management Shell gives you far more granularity in searching the message tracking logs.  The syntax can be a little confusing at first; but once you get it down you can search faster and more efficiently.

  • Hi,

     

    From you problem description, I understand that you would like to find out the a more effective method to view the message tracking.

     

    You could use the EMC or EMS method to fulfill the goal.

     

    EMC à Toolbox à Mail flow tools à Message Tracking

     

    At the same time, you could follow the ManU PhiliP’s suggestion to use the EMS, for more detailed information; there is a link for your reference:

    Thx,
