Message Tracking Logs are rolled-over by Microsoft Exchange at every midnight (00:00 GMT). Logs which are not rolled-over might not have the data for the entire day. Due to this Exchange Reporter Plus collects data only from the rolled over logs. Hence, appropriate selection of Time Zone is advised.
