Monitoring emails sent per user in Exchange

Discussion created by mwallace on Mar 10, 2010
We need to track the number of emails sent per user on our Exchange 2007 servers.

We want to raise an alarm is a single user sends more than 300 emails in less than 5 minutes.

Does anyone know of an easy way of doing this?

I could not find anything built into the Exchange Monitor probe.

Right now I'm thinking about writing a script to parse through the Exchange Message Tracking logs and pulling the information I need out, and having Nimbus monitor that.

I think its doable, but if there is an easy or existing way to do it, it would be incredibly helpful.
