the kicker is, I need to track what workstation on the internal domain it was sent from? Is this possible?

What version of exchange

If you are the intended recipient of the message - you can look at message headers in outlook
using view > options
Copy paste the header - there will be a source / from: with the lan ip.

from exchange 2007
Toolbox > message tracking
enter the recipient / sender details / servername / date range

Please post back if you have questions.

If you have the original email you can look at the message internet headers and it should show the internal IP/FQDN it originated from. If you're running Exchange and had Transport logging turned on to the max it probably would have showed up as well in your Application log on the server.
