How do I have exchange copy emails from one account to another?

I would like to set up an e-mail box in exchange 2010 to copy all emails sent and received by 2 different members of my organization to it so a third party can log in and see what has been sent and received by these two people. Is there any way to do this?

As part of the user properties, you can specify and alternate recipient. However you have to be careful that whovever is receiving these copies doesn't have any autoreply or anything that might get sent out to every message they receive.

I saw that option but that only takes care of emails sent to an email, I also need emails sent from a particular address to be copied/forwarded over as well. Thoughts?

Journalling is your friend. You can use Journal Rules to achieve this.

You will need a Journalling mailbox, ideally configured with no storage quota limit and to only receive messages from the Microsoft Exchange recipient.

Then, in Exchange Management Console, navigate to Organization Configuration > Hub Transport > Journalling Rules. Create one or more rules here for each user you wish to journal communications for and specifying the journalling mailbox you created earlier as the journal destination.

For multiple users, either create multiple journal rules (one for each user), or create a distribution group, add the people to journal to that group, then specify that group in the journal rule as the users to journal.

You are warned when creating the rule that Journal Rules require Exchange Enterprise CALs.

Depending on the situation, I have either used outlook web access as administrator to simply open the user's mailbox. Alternatively, I have created a rule at the email gateway to send email from certain addresses back to whoever wants to monito the outgoing messages. However that solution only works for external mail.
