Audit mail usage on Lotus domino

Hi all,

I've been asked to audit how our Domino users are using the mail. I would like to track the following information:

sender
recipients
time
size
used encryption

Is it possible to configure on of the mail servers (we are running a cluster) to log all those info on a txt file? I can then take care of parsing it, in order to extract the info.

Thanks

re your question: the possibility of using one server to track it depends on your mail topology.  If there is one server through which ALL mail passes, then that server is the one to setup monitoring on, using one of the two methods mbonaci outlined.

But this is rarely the case. Usually, if multiple servers exist and you want to audit everything, you need to audit it on every server.  So as to catch mail generated by applications as well...

Thanks for your replies. I looked at message tracking, but for a single message there are several entries on the log file, so I assume there is some processing to be done.

I stumbled across a domino utility called iMail, which does what I'm looking for with apparently a very small footprint on the servers (it has to installed on the mail servers and hubs)
