Here my problem

Someone or service send email on behlf of my user. I need to find who or what is sending this email. So I activate message tracking in exchange 2003 but when it's internal emails we don't see the ip adresse of the client PC.

Since this is an intermittent problem I need a solution that will allow me further consultation.

The service that sends email is internal is probably use MAPI connexion so no headers. All the transaction Entire transaction happens internally.

My user periodically receives alerts from the  exchange system administrator has about email
does not exist at the organization this message was sent to. But the user never send this message. I need to find who or what send this email.

 In addition, the destination address is not an email address is a ldap address, reason why Exchange can not find the recipient (/O=domain/OU=x/CN=Configuration/cn=Servers/cn=xx).

So something use my user sender address to send email to a no existing user on my excahnge environment. When exchange discover that the email don't exist send back a alert email to the sender email.

So I need a way to find wich ip address send this email? I don't know what this email is about since we only recived the alert email.
