Incoming/Outgoing Mail Monitor...

I am new to the Notes/Domino Admin area so please humour me...
I need to get some sort of Event Log which displays details of incoming and outgoing mail for all users including the body text or subject text.  I know there are third party vendors who provide this sort of thing - I was wondering if it could be done using something already supplied with Domino Server.

Hi

You can monitor the mail routing through log.nsf database, but it doesn't give u much details about the recepient and body and subject, but you can tweak the mail template so that any message sent out could be copied to a centralized monitoring person, say admin

For that the memo and reply forms in mail database should be modidified, the field BCC would be right choice for stamping the admin id, whenever the user sends mail, in BCC append the admin id so that the mail is routed to admin persons,

In BCC field use the following formula:

Place this code in Input Translation
===============================
@if( @isDocbeingmailed; BCC:"admin"; BCC);


PS: You must modify Memo and Reply forms

Good Luck

Risk Taker,

If you are running the Domino R5 Server then you do not need to do any modifications to the mail template.  All you need to do is enable Message Tracking for the Domino Server.  Let me know if you need more info, or if you're running R4x Servers then disregard.
