Exchange Mailbox Traffic Reports

Exchange Reporter Plus's Mailbox traffic reports offer a clear insight on the mailbox traffic, both by numbers and size. It equips an Exchange administrator with the statistics needed to keep a tab on the mailing patterns of Exchange mailbox users and track their email message traffic.

These reports present a useful tool to track and analyse mailbox traffic, and also help Exchange administrators keep a vigilant eye on the usage of mailboxes in the organization. In addition to historic traffic, administrators can now track current day's traffic. Exchange Reporter Plus's mailbox traffic reports are presented either as bar-graphs or as relative-growth-charts with the data consolidated from the traffic logs across servers 2003, 2007, 2010, 2013 or 2016.

Exchange Reporter Plus houses four mailbox traffic reports:

Number of Messages by Sender

  • Number of Messages by Sender
  • Size of Messages by Sender
  • Number of Messages by Recipient
  • Size of Messages by Recipient

These reports provide vigilance on mailbox traffic on both ends of Exchange email communication. This enables an administrator to find out users sending and receiving emails, and the reply time. These traffic reports get granular in the following aspects:

Response time

  • Source of the email traffic: Each report separates intra-domain mailbox traffic from inter-domain mailbox traffic, which is a useful signal for the administrator to keep a check on communication with external domains.
  • Hourly and Daily Report: You can view all the reports on a hourly basis which will come in handy to analyze mailbox traffic trends.
  • Response time: View the response time taken for email messages contained in selected mailboxes using the email response time report.

These reports can help arrive at actual business solutions. A couple of cases are discussed below:

Case 1 - Optimizing Server-Space for emails:

There might be instances where, even in normal circumstances, one server might be handling considerably more load than the other. In such cases, data gathered from mailbox traffic reports can be of assistance in balancing server loads and enabling a smoother operation of the Exchange environment. This can be helpful in monitoring the Exchange server performance and planning the future capacity.

Case 2 - Protection against Spamming Activity in the Servers:

An abnormally-high mailing activity either originating from or directed to a particular Exchange-user's mailbox is a clear sign of some malicious activity. While in rare cases this might be intentional, it is mostly a malware that works behind these anomalies. Using the data gathered from Exchange mailbox traffic reports of Exchange Reporter Plus, an exchange administrator can get alerted at the right time and can take the necessary action.
