All exchange server alerts are sent to my blackberry.  I need a way to find out which computer keeps sending this  e-mail that's undeliverable.  I looked into the logs on my exchange server 2003 but was unable to find the ip of the computer that initially sent the e-mail.  Does anyone know how I can find out which computer on my network is sending this e-mail?

message did not reach some or all of the intended recipients.

The following recipient(s) cannot be reached:

      address@yahoo on 4/8/2009 4:10 AM
            The e-mail system was unable to deliver the message, but did not report a specific reason.  Check the address and try again.  If it still fails, contact your system administrator.

That looks like a phishing attempt, so may well not be a machine on your network at all. Have you got your server set to send you a copy of the NDRs?
