Exchange 2003

I have an Exchange 2003 server.
I need to find all incoming email from a particular domain going back as far as possible.
What is the best way to do this?

If the e-mail in question was already delivered to mailbox(es), then your options are quite limited.

If you have not previously enabled JOURNALING, then your only option is to use the logs of what was received --- that will be very cumbersome at best unless you have a tool to make use of the log files.  JOURNALING allows ALL mail that traverses your server to be captured into a special mailbox.

That said --- if Journaling wasn't already turned on, you will only be able to locate what physical messages that still exist in your users mailboxes...

I do not have Journaling turned on and the messages were delivered to the mailboxes.
How about the undelete features on the backend of exchange?

You can try it --- but if enough time has passed, they're self-purged by Exchange.   You "MIGHT" get some back, but definitely not back to the beginning of time.
