Exchange 2003 mail reply

Hi,

I use a bespoke software package to send invoices and order details to customers, the software just hands the email over to the MS Exchange 2003 to send the email. The email address is 'spoofed' so it doesn’t actually go through the Mailbox in question, it just uses the Exchange Servers SMTP engine to send it off the recipient.

I Would like to record what is sent from this email address but as none of the emails show in the mailbox this currently cannot be done, can anyone recommend some kind of monitor on the Exchange server that collects all emails sent out from a specific email address through the SMTP engine rather than the mailbox directly?

Regards,
Alex

You cannot really do it with Exchange 2003, because the email is literally "bounced" off Exchange.
Are you able to BCC a recipient in the software package? If you can do that, then setup a mailbox internally to collect that information for you.
Another option would be to use a smart host so you have a chance to get a copy.

If you were using a more recent version of Exchange then it is much easier to do because the email actually goes through Exchange and is subject to transport rules.

Simon.
