Abstract: You installed Exchange 2016 after it was running for a longer time you realized that the logfiles where growing and at the end you had a 2 GB logfile per day which you couldnĀ“t open in notepad.

To read the logfiles you could use the following powershell 3 command:

Get-Content yourfile.log -Tail 500 > C:\temp\tailed.log
