Hi,

I need to trace / trac / investigate a issue where a mail from individual mailbox was moved to a shared mailbox which happens to be mapped in the same user profile.

Is there is way to track when this mail was moved and possibly by whom?

Thanks!

You can use exchange message tracking utility under tools in your exchange management console. From there you specify the users' mail id and the approx date and time and search for the message, this will show you all the messages sent or received during that time. Select your missiong message and click on next this will give the detailed report.

well here is the problem.
The mail was not SENT and was Moved from User inbox to the inbox of a shared mailbox on which this user has access.

Liek User A has access on a shared mailbox SharedMB
The user A' s outlook profile has that shared mailbox added as an Additional mailbox.
During sometime a specific personal mail got moved from user A's inbox to teh shared mailbox ibox (Like we manually move mails to our custom folders)
I need to track as in when that mail got moved.

I understand that since it was not a Send-Recieve situation, i would probably not see any thing in message tracking logs as this mail never got sent out and was moved.

any suggestions, if we can check any other logs related to mailbox database?

I think you'll need to search manually on both the mailboxes.

Hi,

I think you can use message tracking and you will get the time stamps when the mail delivered to the individual mailbox and you need to manually see whether that mail is there in user mailbox or not, but you are correct it wont show when it got moved

one thing, if the user outlook is configured with OST, first it will synch to offline as well and will generate a log in local client system, may be that will can give you some details to when it moved the mails by seeing the latest synch logs to ost files
