Need to be able to open anyone's mailbox for admin purposes
Posted on 2006-07-10
I've been asked to do some forensic research of some employees which requires that I be able to open their mailbox and view everything including sent mail, deleted mail and such. In exchange 5.5 I could open people's mailboxes with an Exchange Admin account. Not so in Exchange 2003. I tried to create an admin profile with the Exchange Admin account as the owner of the mailbox and then ADD other users mailboxes, but it doesn't seem to work all the time.
Can I use the System Manager in a way to view/pull emails from any account? I'd prefer to do things from my computer, but have no issues running things from the server.
