Which originating server?

Paul D.Smith

Anyone solve the following for me?

My company uses "sendmail" to generate useful e-mails such as "your
overnight build succeeded/failed" and it seems that someone has
misconfigured one of these. Each morning I get an unexpected e-mail from
the "builds" account just saying "Hello".

So, short of looking at all possible machines, how do I figure out which
machine is sending this e-mail? I can read the message ID but this just
indicates the Outlook server on which the account resides and not the
machine using "sendmail".

Any ideas?
Thanks,
Paul DS.

Wouldn't that information be in the message headers that you can see in Options?

No. This is the Outlook/Exchange version of sendmail which sends directly
via Exchange. Since the e-mail never sees an SMTP server, there are no
regular internet headers, just the Exchange Message ID which only indicates
which Exchange server was used by the sender.

Thus far, I've not managed to find anything which ties the e-mail to the
actual server on which the client (sendmail in this case) is running, as
opposed to the Exchange server being used.
