Enable SMTP logging in Exchange 2010

By default logging is disabled for the SMTP protocol.  I need to enable it for troubleshooting so here is how to do that using the EMC (Exchange Management Console):

  1. Open EMC
  2. Navigate to Microsoft Exchange On-Premises -> Server Configuration -> Hub Transport
  3. Right-click the required receive connector and choose Properties
  4. Change the Protocol logging level from None to Verbose
  5. Click OK

By default the logs are stored in C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\V14\TransportRoles\Logs\ProtocolLog\SmtpReceive
