I have an exchange server 2000, that I have disabled relay. However we are getting a ton of spam being sent through our server.  I think I may have a mass mailer virus in my office somewhere.  Can someone please let me know if there is a way to trace an email back to the pc that sent it?  I can not find a way in message tracking.  This way I can find out what pc is sending out the spam and using my exchange server.

Thanks in advance
Chad

Sorry, still new to this board.  It was the right answer, just that the log was not much help.

Sorry,
