Email sent from Outlook, OWA or iPhone - Exchange 2010

Hi all,

is there any way to tell if a particular email was sent from Outlook, OWA or an iPhone.

We have a user from whose account an email was being sent but the user is denying that he sent that email. Now I need to figure out which device it went from so that we can focus on that area. iPhones are controlled through Airwatch.

Thanks.

Also look at the sender's IP in the header.

I analyzed the 2 headers, one sent from my iPhone and the other from Outlook. The MIME version says 1.0 for both.

But when email is being sent from Outlook, the message ID has 'some ID'@serverFQDN.domain.local

When sending from iPhone, message ID is showing 'some ID'@domain.local

Any ideas ?

The client data is contained in the message tracking log under the SourceContext variable. http://www.msexchange.org/kbase/ExchangeServerTips/ExchangeServer2013/ManagementAdministration/determine-clients-used-send-emails.html has some information on how to examine information in the tracking log.

Get-TransportService is not recognized by Exchange 2010's EMS ?

@Adam I tried doing that with the toolbox option Tracking Log Explorer in the EMC. I have the data in front of me. Source Context here has different types of information. How do we read it ? Any ideas.

The client type in the log created using Adam's solution should show you what you want to know.

MOMT = Outlook
OWA = Outlook Web Access
AirSync = Active Sync (usually a phone/pad/etc)
