Mail audit trail

Hi,
Someone (an ex-employee) is accusing me of checking their old work email and obtaining login details from that and invading their privacy, interfering with their facebook .etc.
The account in question had been deleted for years, but I would like to know if there is a way of proving that.
Is there a way of getting records that can show that an account did not exist at a certain point in time?
I would like to clear my name :)
We run postfix.
Regards
Steven

Was this persons password reset so they could not login.
Are they accusing you of doing this?
How did they regain access?

In answer to your question..

Depends how far back your logs and backups go.
If you can show in your logs that emails were rejected, that would be good.

I'm not sure that it would do as proof, as the records, could be tampered with anyway.

It's not likely that even if the logs existed, that your interested parties would accept it.

I suggest that if a facebook account is hacked, then they should take it up with facebook.

It seems they assume the password was emailed to their old bowens.co.za email address ( which no longer exists) - I presume facebook does not email passwords, they seem to force you to change your password.
They are accusing me of using that to log into their account and perform certain actions (like adding myself as their friend)
I am not sure how they regained access, if they ever lost access. I think they presume their password was compromised, not changed.
I have asked them to take it up with facebook. we do have an electronic communication police stating that company email is continually monitored, not in any way private, and not for personal use.
This of cos does not prevent them from accusing, hating or slandering me.
I have also reported their messages to facebook, I can't figure out how to report their wall posts. I don't want to delete the posts as they clearly show the anger and clouded judgement of the accuser.
Hey, I would be angry if someone invaded my privacy too, I just hope he finds the real culprit and stops slandering me.
On Monday I am going to have to explain the whole situation to my boss, how embarrassing is that.

You are right, facebook does not email out passwords.

If the harassment continues, I would report it to the police.
