  • Exchange 2003 reporting email usage.

    Hi all,

    I have a small query. We have an Exchange server 2003 setup in our environment and is working well and everything.

    What I was wondering was if it would be possible to issue some reports regarding email usage, like for example how many emails are sent and received by a specific user or department. Is this possible with or without 3rd party software? If so how?

    Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks in advance.

    Exchange Server 2003 doesn't have any built in reporting capability. You'll need a third party program like Promodag for that.

      You will need message tracking enabled, if it isn't already. If you don't have it enabled then the information isn't available.

        Thanks both for the replies.

        I already have the tracking enabled but the reports are messy and difficult to read. Apart from promodag is there anything else? I would like to look at various options before deciding.

        Also a quick question, is groupshield able to issue such reports?

        Thanks in advance.

          Did you look at the link that I provided? There are many choices available to process the logs.

          Message tracking is the only way to get that information - nothing else will provide it. While the built in message tracking tool doesn't give much information, the logs are used to create reports by third parties.
