  • Track incoming and outgoing emails for a user

    One of the department managers has asked that I supply the following information for emails sent & received for a particular user for the last 30 days:

    Date
    Time
    To
    From
    Subject

    Is this possible using Exchange 2003 server?

    You should be able to do it using the message tracking centre.

    I'm not sure to what level it goes to in 2003 though.

      If you have message tracking turned, covering that period on with all the options then you can get all of those options.

      If message tracking was not turned on, then you are out of luck. You would have to access the mailbox to see what is there - and if the user has been up to no good there will be no evidence in the mailbox.

        That worked gr8 as Message Tracking was already turned on. How do I export the data to say, XL? All I want is a list of the emails coming in showing date/time, message subject and sender details. Thanks

          There is no easy way to export the tracking results.
          You can try working with the raw files - although the format isn't very kind.

          Promodag have a tool that will import the logs in to Access.

            ope this helps.
            since logging is enabled, check the directory in which yo logs are saved.
            (open ESM and go to protocols. Select smtp, right click the server and click properties. On active log format click properties, this will show you the full path of your saved logs)
            Open the log using word editor like notepad, copy the details and paste in excel.
