I am troubleshooting a problem trying to SMTP into an Exchange 2010 machine.

I would like to view SMTP logs to see dropped or rejected sessions in order to try to figure out exactly why the sessions are being rejected.

I'm familiar with the message tracking log, but doesn't it only track successful sessions?

How can I view some raw session data for Exchange 2010?

Do you host and/or have access to your smtp relays (mx servers) ? Are you talking about "internal" email send or external email send ? "but doesn't it only track successful sessions?" no, tracks also unsuccessful sessions –  krisFR Dec 13 '13 at 23:30
