Exchange 2003: SMTP logging and “bad mail”

pts.

I have recently conducted an email campaign recenlty for the company I work for. There have been some errors and I need to find some information. Basically I know what my error was, I know need to find out which recipients did not receive the email. I know that the "bad mail" folder holds these error messages, but is there a "main" log? Is there a way to get a summary list? Like just the recipients and basic error details? I hope there is a way, because it is going to be an awfully tedious process to go through each .bad file! I really appreciate any help that can be offered - I am happy to use beginner to advanced solutions.

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Well in both the MTA and SMTP you have to turn logging on, by default I do not believe it is. Within System Manager, you can see on the SMTP virtual server and also Under servers – properties Diagnostic logging tab and other areas to invoke logging. Really, hit www.msexchange.org for a full detail of logging and the options.
