Well I just went back to this old script, I rewrote so it will now work with Nagios. The output is simple and just reports total Top emailers, the script also requires/takes 3 arguments topemailers.wsf 3 5000 10000 would report only the Top 3 senders of yestarday and would raise alarm to Warning if the TOTAL emails sent reaches 5000 and critical for over 10000. The new version of the script only requires logparser.dll (no need for .mdb anymore) More about the history of this script is here
Allows you to monitor how are the TOP senders of email.
Also usefull to detect attacks, and miss use of your exchange server.
I hope this helps someone, I am willing to rewrite the code, since it does need a cleanup.
It requires NRPE_NT.
Define the Exchange top emailers Command :
$USER1$/check_nrpe -H $HOSTADDRESS$ -t 40 -u -c get_top_emailers -a $HOSTNAME$ $ARG1$ $ARG2$

The output of the script is something like:
Status OK 1116 - postmaster@rera.org(93) - postmaster@rera.org(558) - postmaster@rera.org(465)
