What will be IP address of Email send on LAN

By wild_star ·
CIO has asked me to trace the source machine or IP from which the email was send.
- i have Exchange 2003 and the sender & Recepiant are within the network so it has become difficult for me to trace the sender
i have tried looking at the Security Log but the Logs are configured to be overwritten everyday and Email to be traced is a week old.
- can the Email be traced from Antispam server even if its not a SPAM.

Help me out guys

If you are using Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Express or Windows Live Mail as E-Mail Client in your organization then follow the following steps:
1) Right-Click on the mail and select Properties OR Open the mail and select File/Properties from the Menu
2) Select the "Details" Tab and Click on the "Message Source" Button.
Presto you will have details. This will open the e-mail in Notepad style in Full ASCII Text. Go through the Details in it.

If you use DHCP, depending on the lease period, that IP address may not be assigned to the same machine it was last week. It probably is, and for day-to-day working purposes I'd assume it was, at least initially. However, I wouldn't base legal or personnel decision on that assumption.
