Is there any way to trace the source where the email is coming from ?

Hello,

I have an automated email that is coming From: whaterver@domain.local To: user1, user2, and user3.

Is there anyway to know what is triggering the email to come From: whatever@domain.local ?

Thanks,

You should be able to look at the headers in the message properties to see the originating computer.

The headers are here:

I copy them out to notepad to make it easier to search, but you can trace back to the origin.  (Less helpful because i have to obfuscate but you can see the source was an internal address)

Just checked the Received: as Dustin gives in his example.

Received: describe all the machines an email has passed through from it's origination to delivery.

There's no way to tell what triggered the initial email, unless the triggering application embeds custom header's which publish details about the application.
