New-MailboxAuditLogSearch

Exchange 2010
 

Applies to: Exchange Server 2010 SP3, Exchange Server 2010 SP2

Topic Last Modified: 2012-11-19

Use the New-MailboxAuditLogSearch cmdlet to search mailbox audit logs and have search results sent via e-mail to specified recipients.


New-MailboxAuditLogSearch [-Organization <OrganizationIdParameter>] -EndDate <ExDateTime> -StartDate <ExDateTime> -StatusMailRecipients <MultiValuedProperty> [-Confirm [<SwitchParameter>]] [-DomainController <Fqdn>] [-ExternalAccess <$true | $false>] [-LogonTypes <MultiValuedProperty>] [-Mailboxes <MultiValuedProperty>] [-Name <String>] [-ShowDetails <SwitchParameter>] [-WhatIf [<SwitchParameter>]]

The New-MailboxAuditLogSearch cmdlet performs an asynchronous search of mailbox audit logs for the specified mailboxes and sends the search results by e-mail to the specified recipients. The body of the e-mail message contains search metadata such as search parameters and the time when the search request was submitted. The results are attached in an .xml file.

To search mailbox audit logs for a single mailbox and have the results displayed in the Shell window, use the Search-MailboxAuditLog cmdlet instead. To learn more about mailbox audit logging, see Understanding Mailbox Audit Logging.

You need to be assigned permissions before you can run this cmdlet. Although all parameters for this cmdlet are listed in this topic, you may not have access to some parameters if they're not included in the permissions assigned to you. To see what permissions you need, see the "Mailbox audit logging" entry in the Messaging Policy and Compliance Permissions topic.
