Exchange does not record or document when the Mail Manager was enabled, or any of the settings changed.  It will not appear in the event log.

Well, a few users have suddenly started saying that mail messages with attachments over a 1mb have all dissappear from their mailbox. on closer inspection this appears to be the case.

I then checked on ESM and the mail box manager policy had been set, but i have not set this and i was wondering if it was possible to find out who it was or at least an event ID that could be found using eventcomb or some other app maybe?

can you help?
