All emails that pass thru the email server of a financial institution must be archived. When a FINRA auditor arrives on site, how would he determine that an email(s) may have been deleted deliberately or unintentionally from the exchange database? Is there a tool that can be used or is there a native exchange utility that can be used

hmm as a standalone there is nothing in exchange 2003 that i know of that would make you complaint
however, from your archving perspective, usually i believe finra asks for compliance to sec rules 17a-3 and 17a-4
you would need to consult your archiving solution (hardware/software/hosted) for letters of attestation stating compliance to these rules

if in house, symantec enterprise vault /w compliance accelerator agent, highly scalable + other agent add-ons available
