MessageStats lets IT managers and Microsoft Exchange Server administrators perform business-critical analyses on Exchange email infrastructures and produce relevant, easy-to-understand reports and graphs. To reduce risk and cost, you need to make informed decisions about your Exchange deployment. MessageStats helps you leverage Exchange usage information to justify budgets, focus investments, distribute expenses, and reduce overall costs. MessageStats includes reports on servers, delivery times, message sizes, mailbox activity, orphaned mailboxes, distribution lists (DLs), public folders, Exchange storage, and Internet traffic. You can quickly create custom reports featuring sophisticated queries with customized field selection, filtering, grouping, sorting, and formatting based on more than 85 data sources. MessageStats' nonintrusive, agentless architecture enables speedy deployment, even in large organizations or environments in which strict change controls exist.
