Are there log files for changes to Exchange 2007 Distrbution groups? (server side) RRS feed

  • Question

  • I think I may have accidentally delelted the wrong member from a distribution group; however I can't be sure (as I don't know who they were). Are there any automatic log or audit files for changes to these groups?

    The change was made directly on the Exchange server on the Exchange Management Console.

    Not unless you've enabled them -- in Exchange 2010.
