What is a good way to log mailbox usage? I'd like to know who and when someone is sending, forwarding replying, etc, on a public folder mailbox.
Win 2000 Server
Exchange 5.5

In Exchange 5.5 you can set up Message Journaling. Note make sure that you have written permission from your boss before doing this. Many consider this a breach of privacy!

Thanks for the comment. That's not quite what I'm looking for but may come in handy for some clients that work in securities. I was hoping that I could turn on something like W3C logging and write a vb script to pull out the activity on one particular mailbox.

hi molku,

Unless you buy a thrid party solution, as far as I'm aware, that's it for logging on a 5.5 server. Message run throught the MTA, not the SMTP connector. it's a bugger in 5.5 and Journaling is the only real option.
