I need a bit of help making some sense out of my event log. Hopefully
someone can lend a hand. Sorry if this is long.
I have an Exchange Server 2003 recently set up and servicing a 50-user
company. I was browsing the application even log and I am getting regular
and frequent (several every minute, to every few minutes) warnings and one
particular error. I believe that most of these are related.
BTW the system is performing just fine, I am just uneasy with the presence
of all of those warnings .
Here are the symptoms I have observed are:

I need to have a look at log files. Where can I find them? Is there a way to

Thank you very much.
Which log files?
Transaction log files? Check the properties of the Storage Group to find
out the location of the transaction logs. You can't read them though. They
are not in a format that can be read by any text editor.
SMTP log files? Event logs? Can you clarify what you are looking for? You

...security event logs do not log all failures from OWA ? ?
I noticed that if a user do not enter the username in the domain\username in
the username field from OWA then exchange checks if the user exists on the
default domain and then if it doesn't then it doesn't log the failure login
in the security event log.
I am kind of worried since, somebody can just try a DoS attack and the logs
wouldn't point to it !!!

Nope - but, you can try changing the recovery model to BULK-LOGGED and

I want to be able to track when a user connects to their mailbox. I have
someone who is trying to connect to other mailboxes and I want this to be log
in the event log. I would like to show the user name and the mailbox they
tried to connect to in the same event. Is there a way to do this?
Thanks in advance for your help...
Question for you...Does this person who is attempting to connect to the
mailboxes have full exchange administrator rights on the Exchange Org? If
so, you may want to refer to a previous post as this same question was asked
and then answered.

I want to log internet header of incoming emails. I want to see the content

You can create a rudimentary log of incoming mail using the SMTP protocol
logging feature of the SMTP virtual server. It will not record the BCC
field or any of the message content, though. The BCC field would be inside
the RFC 2822 header of the message. To record anything in that you would
need an SMTP protocol sink.
