For tracking user activity like delete, move, you can enable auditing in exchange.

lepide can't see the moved and deleted mails details rather it can see the changes happen to the whole mailbox. for example mailbox creation/deletion/moved/modification.

Has Powershell sent you back into the Stone Age?

If managing Active Directory using Windows Powershell® is making you feel like you stepped back in time, you are not alone.  For nearly 20 years, AD admins around the world have used one tool for day-to-day AD management: Hyena. Discover why.

Deibel,

What exactly are you trying to accomplish?  Because tracking this kind of thing can be a nightmare -- it may be better for you to tell us what problem you have and let us help you find a proper solution to it.

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Why do you want to know that?  Unless you've provided Full Access Permissions for users to another user's mailbox, the only person who can delete an email message is the owner of the mailbox.

Plus, email messages are easily recoverable and you can look at the Deleted Item Recovery to view the DATE messages were deleted.

Furthermore, if you want more capability to capture this information, Exchange 2010 already has the functionality.  You just need to enable Journaling.

Journaling is what is used for organizations to be in compliance with tough regulatory agencies -- so it does EXACTLY what you want.

AuditEnabled $true command will not audit Owner activity by default.  You have to specify if you want Owner activity audited.

Had you run the command to see if the AuditEnabled command had applied (Get-Mailbox UserName |FL *audit*) you would have seen that nothing was enabled for Owner audit.

So, to enable owner audit try running this command:

Set-Mailbox –identity “UserName” –AuditOwner {SoftDelete, HardDelete}

hello jeff
this is the output
AuditEnabled     : True
AuditLogAgeLimit : 90.00:00:00
AuditAdmin       : {Update, Move, MoveToDeletedItems, SoftDelete, HardDelete, FolderBind, SendAs, SendOnBehalf, Create}
AuditDelegate    : {Update, SoftDelete, HardDelete, SendAs, Create}
AuditOwner       : {Update, Move, MoveToDeletedItems, SoftDelete, HardDelete, Create}

as you can see it is activated

Ok, so it should be working.  How are you testing it?

deibelAuthor Commented:
Search-MailboxAuditLog -Identity username -LogonTypes Delegate -StartDate 1/1/2014 -EndDate 1/1/2015 -ResultSize 1 -ShowDetails

As -LogonTypes i also use owner

another way the testing ower ECP.

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Your syntax is wrong.  It should be -LogonType:Owner  (no "s" -- and needs to have a colon between -LogonType and the type).

So please try this instead (and be sure to start the EMS with "as Administrator":

Search-MailboxAuditLog -Identity <username> -LogonType:Owner -ShowDetails$True

So, only replace <username> with an actual user name otherwise, copy and paste exactly as I've typed above.

thx jeff
the wright one is
Search-MailboxAuditLog -Identity username -LogonType Owner -StartDate 1/1/2014 -EndDate 1/1/2015 -ResultSize 1 -ShowDetails

no nee to start EMS as Administrator

now i get results in the EMS but...

in the ECP it still doesent show any results

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
Reboot your server.  Wait a day or two and check ECP again.  Sometimes it takes a bit for that to crank up.

its still doesent work in ecp

Search-MailboxAuditLog -Identity -LogonType Owner -StartDate 1/1/2014 -EndDate 1/1/2015 -ResultSize 1 -ShowDetails

whta do i need to select in ecp if the  logontype is owner?

Jeffrey Kane - TechSoEasyPrincipal ConsultantCommented:
You may not be in the correct Administrative Role Groups to be able to see the info in ECP.

You'll find an overview of how to check this and make the appropriate changes here:
