Solved: How do I execute a message trace in Office 365 based on the subject line?

Solution

Try this to find all messages with a particular subject in the last 24 hours:

$dateEnd = get-date
$dateStart = $dateEnd.AddHours(-24)

$count = Get-MessageTrace -StartDate $dateStart -EndDate $dateEnd | Where {$_.Subject -eq "Phishing attempt"}
$count.Count

or

$dateEnd = get-date
$dateStart = $dateEnd.AddHours(-24)

$count = Get-MessageTrace -StartDate $dateStart -EndDate $dateEnd | Where {$_.Subject -eq "Phishing attempt"}
$count.Count

In my test tenant, my subject searching using this syntax is currently working. Also try to filter on different subjects that are present to see if the problem appears for all subject searching.

If you’re trying to search for a subject %LIKE% then use -match instead of -eq.
