  • Message Tracking Logs are rolled-over by Microsoft Exchange every midnight (00:00 GMT). Logs which are not rolled-over might not have the data for the entire day. Because of this Exchange Reporter Plus collects data, only from the rolled over logs.

  • Message Tracking Logs are gathered from Exchange Servers from the default log path. If there is any change in the log path you can update the log path using the "Log Path configuration" option of Exchange Reporter Plus.
