    Yes, I would track using the Message ID of the message

    $Servers = Get-ExchangeServer; $Servers | where {$.isHubTransportServer -eq $true -or $.isMailboxServer -eq $true} | Get-MessageTrackingLog -MessageId ba18339e-8151-4ff3-aeea- | Select-Object Timestamp,ServerHostname,ClientHostname,Source,EventId,Recipients | Sort-Object -Property Timestamp

    Look for any FAIL events.

    Or filter for them:


    $Servers = Get-ExchangeServer; $Servers | where {$.isHubTransportServer -eq $true -or $.isMailboxServer -eq $true} | Get-MessageTrackingLog -MessageId ba18339e-8151-4ff3-aeea- -EventId Fail
