    One option is Journalling, where a copy of every message is made. Check your local privacy laws first.

    The other is the Message Tracking Centre which provides detailed logging about message flow, but not message content

      Use the tracking logs for this. Storing copies of emails without prior consent is illegal.

        That depends where you live. You could argue that having emails on a server would break this? How about archiving? (not meant to be argumentative by the way!)

        Tracking logs are good but can only show you times/dates/subject.

          is it possible to traceout who send the mail to exchange 2003 mailbox users from Exchange server with previous date?

            The tracking logs will tell you this. Specify the dates and times and the query will show you the relavent data.

              Interesting you say that as the Government has already implemented email retention via the Anti-Terrorism act for tracking emails via your ISP. The UK government is already embarking on more transparency with a Sarbanes Oxley approach which will compliment the freedom of information act. That being said the whole premise of using the Ant-Terrorism act to pass a law under very hazy cooperate governance is extremely tardy and most all very Orwellian with little knowledge as to Internet Law, logistics involved or the technology.

              In all the places iv worked in Public and Private sector viewing emails without prior consent has been a sackable offense for fairly obvious reasons.

                    Let's split this to Coffee Lounge to give the op a break (I've requested this).

                    My reply is of course, it doesn't matter, the difference I was pointing out was between storing (copies) of emails or viewing emails.

                        Karzon, I believe your question has already been answered in this thread. The simplest way to do this would be to turn on journalling, which copies every mail sent or recieved to a journal mailbox, which people can be given permission to access. As has been pointed out, consult company management before doing this, as company policy needs to allow for this and make it clear to users that it is being done. And obviously, make sure it is legal for you to do this.
