Exchange 2003 - Message Tracking Center desktop tool for Human Resources (HR)

Is anyone aware of a tool or utility that would allow us to grant someone in HR access to be able to search through the MTC via a tool on their desktop, without installing the ESM?

Well you still have to install the ESM, but you can restrict access to it and then create a new MMC console that only contains the tracking utility (it has its own snap-in).

Didn't even think of that.  Thanks for the quick response.  That will be perfect.

Nope. You cant do that.

I dont think its a good idea to allow HR to run queries on Exchange.
They can request emails from you, and you should have a track of what request was made and what info. was provided.

sunnyc7, if you're referring to my post I can assure you that you can do that and I've been doing it for a couple years now.
I agree that this is a good tool for monitoring email usage, since it only allows the user to see who sent emails to who and not actually read the emails themselves.

TheGorby @ I wasnt referring to your post.
I was referring to the question of desktop utility tool etc.

I'd rather have all requests go through SysAd's than give access to HR to do their searches. Also depends on the environment you work on.
