  • Hi,

    Thanks for contacting our forum.

    Do you have antispam agent installed on your Exchange server? And if you’ve configured the SPF check for your Exchange environment.

    These configurations should protect you from antispam and spoofing emails arriving.

    Have you check the message header of the emails from Where they are from?

    You can also check the message tracking log to see the detailed message of the source of these messages with the command below:

    Get-MessageTrackingLog –ResultSize Unlimited –Start "08/16/2017 2:30PM" –End “08/21/2015 3:30PM" –Sender ""  -MessageSubject "subject"| fl >c:\MTL.txt

    Hope it helps.
