I want to know can I configure my mail account (any mail account) with my system IP so that I can check all sent and received mails from my system with different users on different mail accounts.

My aim is to see each mail that is sent or received from my system with any mail account. If anyone uses my system and sends or receives mail with their account, then I want to see the details of this mail.

Is there any possibility to create such a kind of configuration? Or is there any software that maintains this architecture?

Your question is not clear: do you want to intercept all mail traffic on your machine? – Matteo May 2 '12 at 10:16
yes, some thing like this – Ghost Answer May 2 '12 at 10:19
Then please edit your question and make this clear – Matteo May 2 '12 at 10:25

Assuming you can change the clients configuration and that all the accounts are your accounts (i.e., you are not trying to sniff someone else mail).


You can configure all the accounts to use the local machine as an SMTP relay and then forward all the emails to a second account.


You could configure your machine with something like fetchmail to have a central repository of fetched mail

how I can configure all accounts using SMTP relay. Please tell. – Ghost Answer May 3 '12 at 6:06
You should first install an SMTP server on your machine but this depends on the OS you are using. – Matteo May 3 '12 at 6:39
