Sender IP in Exchange 2003

Posted on 2007-04-10

How do I find out the sender IP address of an email message that was sent locally through MS Exchange 2003? It doesn't have headers that I can find and the message tracking center doesn't give me the IP address. I would like to know which computer sent the message.

You can't.
That information isn't recorded anywhere.

If this was a domain user and they were logged in at the time, you could always cross reference the timestamp in the email with the user in the Event Log.

If you are looking for something that will have recorded the information so that you can track back now then you are out of luck.
I cannot even think what would record that information anyway - I cannot think of anything in the AD that would store that information. If the message was sent using OWA then the IP address of the Exchange server would be recorded.
