Viewing where mail is coming from

By rlenaghan ·
Hey all. I am running Exchange 5.0 on an Alpha 2100. I would like too know if there is a way that the Administrator mailbox, or something within Exchange could tell me who is sending extrenal email to us. I really don't want to see the contents of the emails, I just want too know the address of the senders.

Thank you.

Rod

If you have tracking enabled, you can use many third party utilities to create reports such as who is sending you internet email. Such as microdata melia (microdata.com) Or the backoffice resource kit includes built in crystal reports that alreadyhad pre-configured reports for Exchange.

One option is to turn on or up logging on the IMS. If you set it to maximum you should be able to generate a log file with full SMPT header information as well as the message content itself. If this is too much then try setting it to medium. You will still receive SMTP header information this way but without the message content.

To track SMTP (Internet etc.) mail, the easiest way to see where a message has come from is to open the message and select View -> Options (this is Outlook 2000, I think it's slightly different in previous Outlooks). This presents you with the Internet headers, and while a little tough to read at first, they tell you a lot about an incoming message. If you want more general information, you can try reporting against the tracking logs (assuming you have tracking turned on at the IMS). This will allow you to look at things from a bigger perspective.
