I have spam coming from internal clients and I need to see if there is a virus.  But I need to find the IP the message is coming from.

How can I do that??

You can try enabling verbose logging on the Recieve Connectors and Checking the logs.

The sender IP should be in the message header, do you have a copy of the original message with headers intact?

Where would I find the message header??  I looked under the view source and nothing in there of value.

You have it in Outlook? View / Options (depending on the version).

No that is not showing me anything except hiding the To field.

I have the exchange admin saying that he saw it come through our connector but I see no info that this is true.

Highly unlikely to be coming from an internal machine.
I have covered why in this blog posting:

Then I wrote this follow up in February:
Did the spam originate from inside your network:

The server is being abused directly and you need to work out how.
