Delayed Delivery Tracking

If someone uses the feature "Do not deliver before:" in outlook when sending a message to cause it to not be sent until a later time, is there any way to track this after the fact, either in the users sent items or in the message headers of the received message?

We believe someone may be using this feature to portray that they're in working when they're not and would like to find out.

I don't believe you can see anything in the message headers.  If you know who the user is you could keep watch on the Outbox folder.  It is stored there until it is time to send.

The message header should have a "Deferred-Delivery" section if it was sent with a delayed delivery.

Demazter - would that be on the recipient end as well, or only on the sender's side?

Hmmmm, to be honest I'm not sure and don't have the ability to test at the moment.  As far as I am aware it's part of the message header.

There doesn't appear to be a solution to this; I'm closing the question.
