If you don't already have logging enabled, you'll need to do so.  You can do that either from the Exchange Admin Center or using the Exchange Management Shell.  The logs you'll need are most likely these:

  • Front End Transport service on Mailbox servers:

  • Receive connectors: %ExchangeInstallPath%TransportRoles\Logs\FrontEnd\ProtocolLog\SmtpReceive

  • Send connectors: %ExchangeInstallPath%TransportRoles\Logs\FrontEnd\ProtocolLog\SmtpSend

But there are also send/receive logs here too:

  • Transport service on Mailbox servers:

  • Receive connectors: %ExchangeInstallPath%TransportRoles\Logs\Hub\ProtocolLog\SmtpReceive

  • Send connectors: %ExchangeInstallPath%TransportRoles\Logs\Hub\ProtocolLog\SmtpSend

If the logs are already enabled, you should be able to just use the locations below to grab the data you need.  You can find details on how to configure the logging and the location of the logs here.
