I'm not a programmer (and I don't play one on TV), but after browsing
through that article, the code appears to be designed to access MAPI stores
(like PST files) and retrieve the data within, not to modify the data. Which
doesn't imply that isn't possible, but this code doesn't seem designed to do
I'm also not a lawyer (thank god), but if this ex-employee makes the claim
that the data was modified "ex post facto," he'd have to back up his claim
with technical proof as to the viability of that argument. It would then be
the defense's job to prove that it didn't, or couldn't, happen. 
I've been the administrator involved in a similar case, and it's not fun.
Depositions, technical demands, and in the end, you're working a lot harder
than the salary justifies.

This is the argument, it has got to be proved technically...the end user
accuses the admin as the admin is in charge with full control of the system
and of the end user mailbox, if this is true to the level that an admin can
edit and change a text in one of the user's old Sent email keeping the old
date of the message in tact so all the other references then that will be
decisive, we have to find out first ourselves

Gill, Simon, Lara, Raj many thanks , I tried to send you the whole article
but it was too large, the clock example is possible if possible because our
Exchange Server 5.5 is not connected to the net no more, and the user has
left, but read this bit and tell me;

MAPI example code for getting folders and messages

This code is concerned with helping you traverse the folders in an MAPI
message-store, and retrieve the message-content either both in plain text
and in HTML. Typically the message-store will be the "Personal Folders" in
Microsoft Outlook. But it also works with multiple profiles and multiple
message-stores, and should also (untested) work with other Extended MAPI
implementations. It also helps you traverse the folders in a standalone PST
file. The code works (has been tested) with Outlook'97, with Outlook2000
(both Internet Mail Only mode and Corporate/Workgroup mode), and with

The code consists of seven functions, written in C++ for Extended MAPI. I
use it as a unit (mapi_utils.cpp, mapi_utils.h) added to my own project.
This web page contains examples
<>  of how to
use the seven functions plus extra example code, documentation
<>  for
the functions, the header file
<>  and the
source code <>  for
them. You should copy the code and paste it into your own project. The code
uses STL, the standard template library. I wrote it under Borland C++Builder
5, but it should work on most compilers without too much fuss.
