need to see copy of all incoming/outgoing email from multiple accts.

I have a client with 10 PCs all with POP email accts.  They have a W2K3 server domain with a mixture of XP Pro and W2K desktops running Office 2K and XP and use Outlook for email.  

- The owner wants to see all incoming and outgoing email.

I have Outlook on the users desktops set to leave a copy on the server and his PC has all accts setup on it so he currently sees all incoming email.  But I'm trying to find a way for him to see all outgoing email also.  Can Outlook be set to auto CC?  Is there a different email client that would be better?  Is adding Exchange the best solution?

  Any suggestions would be great.

Define one Shared Exchange User for all the mail,define 10 folders (10 inboxes ) with proper permissions for each user

Hi jamesqns,

I don't have access to Outlook 2K or XP at the moment so I don't know if this applies to them or not.  In Outlook 2003 you can create a rule that will cc all sent messages to another address.  If that same rule was available in 2K/XP, then that might do it for you.  The downside to using a rule is that the rule can be turned off.  Another approach would be to write some code that would automatically cc every message to the boss.  Of course a savy user could probably get around that too, but it'd be more difficult to do.  The problem with using code is that you'd need to palce a copy of it on each PC.
