Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Please clarify – is your “SMTP server” the SMTP component of Exchange, or is it a separate product either on the same physical box or on a different server?

It depends on your software implementation, but if memory serves me correctly, the SMTP standard does not make allowances for message saving. In theory, it should just be passing messages from the upstream host to the next downstream SMTP host, in order to route the message properly.

In other words, if your SMTP service is a standalone product, you’re likely out of luck. Someone please check me, I may be wrong.

Cheers

    As said before SMTP is just the mail transfer protocol. POP3 and IMAP is used by the clients to download the messages from the mail server. If you implement IMAP, that allows you to save messages on the mail server and also to download them. In MSExchange Server 2000, you can use GFI MailArchiver tool, you have to buy the licence for it, to archive all mails sent and received. You can also try to backup your database where all the messages are stored.

    Hi, One way to get all the mails SENT to your Exchange users is to set the Forwarding address to your email address in each user's properties in ADUC and select the option "Deliver messages to both forwarding address and mailbox".
