In the administrator account I get a copy of the NDR but within that NDR I don't have enough information.  Is there a way to get more detail on this email?

The <server.domain.company.com #5.1.1> part helps give more info on why the messaged failed. It's part of the NDR description.

Additional info like internet headers can be found through Outlook and the menu view, options. This can give you additional information on external mail troubleshooting.

Within your Exchange organization, enable mail tracking on each server/mailboxstore to be able to track the message internally.

Not that I am looking for a reason why it failed that is perty easy to figure out.  I am looking to find the header information of the original email so that I can tell who in my domain sent it.

As ErikKvK mentioned if you look in the email's Internet Header, it will give you the ip address of the sender, plus all the ip addresses of the mail relays on how it got it your server.
