Searching your Microsoft Exchange 2007 and 2010 Message Tracking Logs

You want to search your Message Tracking Logs using parameters, e.g., By Sender.


Use the Exchange Management Shell for this. Of course, ensure your log retention age is set appropriately or the messages you are tracking will roll out of the log.

  1. Start the EMS.
  2. Run this command:
    Get-MessageTrackingLog -ResultSize Unlimited -Sender “username@example.com” -start “4/1/2013” | select timestamp, eventid, source, messagesubject, sender, {$_.recipients} | export-csv c:results.csv
That’s it! This will send the output to c:results.csv.
There are various search options. Here, we are only using the sender and a start date for the message tracking.
