  • Exchange 2007 Reporting

    One of our clients would like to create a csv (or something similar) of all mail coming and going from the exchange server this is to check that noone is abusing the system. I just wondered if anyone has done this or has any tips/tricks

    You could look into journalling, transport rules or an AV/AS product with rules for certain types of words maybe?

    Can you define "abusing the system" as this can mean different things to different people.
    cheers

      Well, personally I think installing Windows Millennium probably qualifies

        Well they want to maake sure that when a joke or such like comes in people dont sit there all day forwarding them to eachother. This is just an example or just general gossiping.

          Message tracking will give you the core information.
          You can then use third party tools to process those logs and see what is happening with the messages. It doesn't show the messages themselves, just the sender, recipient, subject etc.

            Ossian -

            SystemsEssentials - The difficulty is triggering the events, unless you know the words in the joke etc it makes it a bit difficult. If you journal you can make sure they know everything is kept. Maybe you can set rules to pickup certain words. Personally I think a bit of email banter is good to keep people in the right frame of mind. Having said that usually the best place to start is a good email/internet policy that people sign up to.

            EDIT: I see Sembee doesn't sleep either!
