Check the header info of the mails, u will be able to get the machine name or ip address
from which it was sent ( In case he/she has used any email client ( like outlook, lotus etc) to send mails).

But if a web based mail (like hotmail,yahoo etc) is used , i guess its bit difficult, but still u can log all out going requests from u r proxy, and suspect user activities.

Good luck

The best answer will depend on what kind of e-mail system you are using. If you're using Exchange, you can do message tracking from within Exchange Administrator or you can add a third-party utility such as Mail Essentials. Or you can implement message journaling using the IMSEXT.DLL extension.

If you're not using Exchange and these e-mails are coming from a Web-based e-mail system, it gets a little more difficult and you'll have to look for clues in the proxy logs.

If you know who's doing it, you can track his activity through proxy logs (for web-based mail, or even local cache files)

Or you could load something like AT&T's FREE VNC (or pcAnywhere) and watch him.

Or videotape him. Hey, it's company property, and the video *should* even stand up in court.

You may want to consult a lawyer as well... If you terminate him, he could sue the company, so you want everything airtight.
