We've got a membership-based Web app that runs from an Internet-facing Windows 2003 server. That server is setup as a "relay" through our Exchange 2010 server. SOME, not all, users are reporting that emails sent from the web server aren't being received.

I'm wondering if there's a way to view logs of emails sent by the relay. I can't seem to find any utility in the Exchange Management Console; nor am I finding any email-related logs in the event viewer of the aforementioned web server.

Any insight would be greatly appreciated!


You can find lots of logs at

\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Logs

"Protocol logs" sub directory has SMTP traffic which may help

  • Hey, thanks Phil... right on the money! In my case, the logs in the TransportRoles folder were empty but the MessageTracking folder had the info I was looking for. Thanks again! – Jason H. May 13 '11 at 17:10
