Exchange Server 2003 service pack 2 adds functionality to meet this


For earlier versions of Exchange, see


There might be third party stuff that does what you want, but I'm not
aware of it.

Subject: [exchangelist] audit deleted public folders 

I'm running exchange 2k post sp3 rollup.

I have "Directory Access" auditing enabled on the domain controllers ou.


This morning someone deleted a mail enabled public folder and the only
event i get is this-

OPNYC10 is the dc the delete took place on and EXNYC03 is the exchange
server hosting this folder.

However by reading the event, it looks like the Exchange server deleted
the folder.

I know thats not right.

Is it that someone deleted the mapi folder through Outlook and then
Exchange cleaned up the folder object from AD?

If so, how can I audit the mapi public folder deletions?


Thanks a lot
