Exchange 2007 Mail Flow Monitoring

Hi All,

I need to find a way to monitor all email messages sent to and from users of an Exchange 2007 server.

Can anyone suggest a cheap if not free solution to do this as budget is very tight at the moment.

Assuming this direction came from the owner of the company, and all employee's have signed a company policy that indicates that their email is going to be monitored in such a manner, Journaling is probably what you want

Thank you,

I am just running it past the boss... as he wanted to watch incoming, internal and outgoing in seperate mailboxes or folders, but it doesnt seem like Journeling can do this.

Not sure what you mean by "watch".   This sets up a mailbox where copies of all mail goes to and you can give him permissions to that mailbox.

If he's wanting all this mail in his box...there's no way to do that, that I'm aware

Sorry bad choice of words, should have said monitoring.

Basically he has been using GFI Mailessentials and had inbound emails forwarded to an inbound public folder and outbound to an outbound.  

So he was hoping to forward inbound to an inbound mailbox and you've guessed it outbound to outbound...

He basically wants to avoid all copies going into one folder.

No problem but if he has mail essentials and it's doing what what he wanted, what's the change needed

Inbound is simple, create a public folder with an email address, then on every mailbox, in mailflow, you can have it send to other mailboxes as well as the intended recipient

To be honest never looked finding another way to do outbound

Thanks for the help we have decided to go with Journalling as GFI's catchment rate was no where near as good as it used to be and we felt the need to turn our spam serivce cloud based.
