Save email submitted through Exchange 2010 SMTP server

Posted on 2011-10-27
Last Modified: 2012-05-12
I have an application that uses our Exchange 2010 server to send email through it. I use an AD user account I created to autheticate against the SMTP server to send the email. When I do this I have no record of the sent messages which I really really need. How can I keep a copy or have a backup of the messages this application sends through the Exchange 2010 SMTP server?

Please help I really need to resolve this.

Thanks Guys and Gals

    You need to setup a milbox to capture copies of the sent items. You can then either have your application BCC the mailbox when sending or you can setup a transport rule to add the mailbox as a BCC.

    I have a mailbox AD user that I use to authenticate with the application but the app doesnt have and BCC or CC options just to send the mail. can you offer any more insight into the rule?

    Under Organization Configuration, select Hub Transport then click the Transport Rule tab. Click New Transport Rule. Name the rule and click Next. Select From people and select the sending mailbox. Click Next. Select Blind carbon copy (Bcc) the message to addresses and select your mailbox. Click Next, click Next, click New.
