Tracking a message that has been sent

When troubleshooting, you may need to track a message you have sent. You can track sent messages to learn what servers they move through.

About this task

You can track a mail message as long as all the servers the message must pass through are Domino® Release 5 or later servers. Also, message tracking must be enabled on the servers.


  1. Open the Sent view and select the message.
  2. Click Actions > More > Track Message.
  3. Select the recipient(s) to whom you sent the message that you want to track.
  4. Optional: To add any additional recipients, type or select a recipient name in the Additional recipients field and click Add.
  5. Select Delivery status only or Trace entire path and click OK twice.


The result is sent to your Inbox.
