I have had the most luck with for capturing and troubleshooting packets.

Steps are as follows:

1. Install Ethereal on a laptop/PC

2. Connect to switch that spambox is on.

3. Configure a SPAN session to mirror packets to the port your laptop is plugged into.

4. Start capturing packets.

You can filter the capture to display only HTTP/SMTP if you choose.

If you are just looking for traffic information, makes a pretty handy free analyzer.

u can use a netflow analyser to monitor traffic ( if this traffic passes through the router)
