  • change the date back

    Hi,
    One of the manager request me to change the date, back to 10 days, seems like he has to send out the mail.

    Can I change it on exchange server 2003 ? is it possible to do it?

    thanks.

    I wonder if there is a reasonable business case in such a request. All I can think is some unethical thing like trying to mask a missed deadline or work around some shareware time limits.

    Unless there is a good reason for such a trickery, I am not too willing to try and invent a solution.

    First off, if the Exchange server is a domain member, it will automatically get time from domain controller. Even if you could change the time, it will mess up your logs and data too.

    Second, any other SMTP servers handling the mail will insert current time to the mail messages, so any send time trickery is easily revealed.

      This will hold no water from a legal point of view.
      You would have to switch the entire domain back, and as most domain controllers are configured to get their time from an outside source the time would be corrected.

      As already pointed out, the time the message was recieved would be all over the email.
