This article explains the setup: http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/MF011.html Seems pretty easy to set up. This kind of a process is completely transparent to the end-users. Exchange will simply archive a copy of all email as it passes through. >>But, How can you sure that every user turned off this feature ?? The only users that have to turn off this feature are the few that will have to access the Mail Archive to "spy" on the users. I would think it would be a small task to get this "administrative group" to turn off this feature in their mail clients so they don't send receipts back to all the users that have had their mail archived. I have serious doubts as to whether reading these emails in the Exchange Mail Archive would actually trigger read receipts anyway. Do you have some solid technical backing or are you just conjecturing that this would occur (I am merely conjecturing)? One caveat to this whole mail archiving thing is that Exchange would have to handle all mail traffic. If clients were configured to retrieve their own external mail from a POP3 server(s) then Exchange Mail Archiving won't even see it go by to be able to grab a copy of it. This would bypass the system. If most mail is external communications then this would be unacceptable, I would think.

If the future is turned off, No probs. But, How can you sure that every user turned off this feature ?? And that too Mr.Balaji Naidu want to get a copy and read their emails without the knowledge of the users. ??? Do you know, how to get a copy of outgoing emails (From all the users) ??
