How do I get Exchange to write to the Event Log when email is received from a specific email address?
Posted on 2007-10-07
We use a WIndows 2003 Server, with Exchange 2003 SP2 installed. This server often interfaces with an AIX based UNIX server.
Both of these servers utilise a high-speed link for real-time replication, our industry sector requirements forcing us to do so.
Sometimes, if there is an issue with the link or otherwise, the UNIX servers involved in the replication set can get out of sync or "stale". When this happens, the UNIX box initiates an email via Exchange to a group to inform us that the members of the set are stale.
We use monitoring software (Servers Alive, by Woodstone) to alert, via SMS and Email, ICQ etc... when various problems occur, but so far we have not been able to achieve this monitoring for when the set goes stale.
The monitoring software can watch the Event Log in Windows and alert when a certain event is logged.
I was wondering if anybody knew of a way to force Exchange to write an event in the Windows Server Event Log when an email is received from a certain specified email address?
Regards and Thanks In Advance
