Analyzing Email Traffic on Palo Alto

We have our in house mail server which is behind the Palo Alto, all incoming and outgoing email traffic go through it. Can we analyze the email traffic and get following information?

Yes to all, but not really the last.  It will scan the body/content of the email for threats, but it's not going to record and show you.  All others are fields/columns you will see recorded in traffic logs.

Hello,

While the PAN will analyze the emails, its not meant to replace a SPAM/Secure Email gateway. I recommend you have of in addition to the PAN.
