Hi

A client was close to their mailbox limit and could not find sent emails in his sent items. The exchange tracker looks to show they went, I can see an SMTP to a remote serverIP and a "250 2 1.5 OK", but the client would like the copies of the email.

Any one know if the exchange keeps a copy?

Cheers
Mark

If Journaling is enabled you'll find it there.

We are not using Journaling but a good point.

Remove User's limit (for the time needed to troubleshoot) and the mail (sent) should be delivered to User's mailbox. Don't expect delivery a couple of seconds after you have removed User's limit.

Hi Strivoli,

I raised the limit and new sent ones were being seen in the sent items, but the ones sent while the limit was close are not there after 24 hours.

Message Tracking should tell you exactly what happened to the mail once sent. You already checked the SMTP log and you know the mail has been delivered to recipient's (external) mail server. Message Tracking helps you understand where the sent mail on your server is.

Hi,

The tracking shows 4 lines Receive, Submit, Routing and SMTP. From this can you tell where the email mail be?

The 4 lines aren't enough. I don't know how you filtered the Message Tracking Log Search. Please run a search using the MessageID and the result should return (hopefully) more than the already seen 4 lines.

I have now added Journaling so one of those "should have done before the event things".

Thank you Strivoli
