Hi All,

I have a user who insists an email was sent to them however the email is not in their mailbox or the senders.  I have looked in Exchange Message Tracker and do not see the message there.

Is there another way I can show the user this message is (or is not there)?

I have checked deleted items, etc, all that and its not there.

Thanks!

If the message didn't arrive - there will not be any proof it arrived.

If the message did arrive, then the message tracking should show it up easily.

Also, it could be in Recover Deleted Items if not in Deleted Items.

If you can't find any trace of it anywhere - and the only way mail could arrive to their inbox is via the Exchange server, then it didn't arrive.
