    I have also got this posted on Experts Exchange if you participate over there and have the answer, you can collect the points. http://www.experts-exchange.com/Networking/Linux_Networking/Q_21501119.html

    I have dug for several days and can not find a working solution for this one...

    I have a client who has a requirement placed on them by the SEC to archive ALL Inbound and ALL Outbound email. I have been able to work out a good solution on the Inbound side and am now needing to find a working solution for the Outbound side. The trick is they have three Domains they need to provide archive services for and they are on a shared hosting platform with around 100+ other domains. It took a while to get the Inbound to work without capturing mail destined for Other Domains. The Inbound side needs to do the same. Also .forward files for each user or Domain can not be a solution unless this file can be placed outside the Domain directory and secured in such a way that the Web Dev company can not get at it.

    Here is the Inbound Solution for reference which is at the beginning of the Routers Configuration section of exim.conf. I have a text file /etc/exim/mailarch which defines the domains and where to forward a copy of the Inbound email.
    ########## Mail Archiver ##########
    ##########installed by gmiller on 20050525-064800
    archiver:
    driver = redirect
    verify = false
    expn = false
    domains = ${lookup{$domain}lsearch{/etc/exim/mailarch}{$domain}fail}
    data = ${lookup{$domain}lsearch{/etc/exim/mailarch}}
    file_transport = address_file
    pipe_transport = address_pipe
    unseen = true
    repeat_use = false
    ##########END##########

    ###/etc/exim/mailarch###
    domain1.com: mailarch@domain1.com
    domain2.com: mailarch@domain1.com
    domain3.com: mailarch@domain1.com
    domain4.com: mailarch@domain1.com
    ###END###

    The way this works is for each of the domains listed, any mail destined for only those domains will be copied and forwarded to the email address after the colon on the same line. I would like to modify this filter if possible to do pretty much the same thing for the Outbound traffic.

    I was approaching this like an antispam type filter but without all the content processing but just can not seem to get it to go.

    Oooops, I forgot... If you want the specific regulations which govern this requirement head on over to www.sec.gov and www.nasd.com and locate SEC Rules 17a-3 and 17a-4 and NASD Rules 3010 and 3110

    I have had my fair share of how this is not legal or some conspiricy to spy so please do not yell at me, I am just trying to keep a new client happy.

    Thanks again,
    -greg

    Go on, have a guess
    Please don't bump your own thread, people will post if they want to.

    Your best resource will be the www.exim.org site and the exim mailing list for this type of modification.

    This is also something that is trivial to do if you run MailScanner.

    I'm sure chirpy doesn't want to promote his services in this thread so I will do it for him

    goto www.configserver.com and purchase the mailscanner package and have them do the install for you.

    Chirpy can also setup the archive settings while doing the install

    The mailscanner package does a wonderful job filtering spam and phishing mails and the support from configserver bunch is great

    For what your needing to do that is my recommendation

    Thanks for the advise dave9000 and after a little investigation, I did install MailScanner and played with it for a while and have decided to order the full boat install from chirpy and co.
