Emails are an important part of workplace communication and so are email health checkups. If your Exchange Servers fail to keep email communications afloat, you need to identify and fix the problem immediately. Mail flow health is one of the first things to check when email communication issues arise.
As an Exchange admin, you must be familiar with Test-Mailflow—the PowerShell cmdlet used for email inbox monitoring—that checks if emails are being sent from and received by system mailboxes in your organization's mailbox servers without issue. PowerShell scripting, however, is time-consuming and complex when it comes to email traffic monitoring. Exchange Reporter Plus, an email monitoring tool, allows you to check mail flow health effortlessly, alerting you in real time if there are any issues.
