I think that postfix will allow you to BCC all inbound and out bound
mail, seems like a simple enough solution.  But how do you manage it
after you have it seems to be the real question.


ps I have never played a mail admin on TV so what do I know.

"We trained very hard, but it seemed that every time we were beginning to
form into teams we would be reorganized. I was to learn later in life that
we tend to meet any new situation by reorganizing, and a wonderful method it
can be for creating the illusion of progress, while producing confusion,
inefficiency and demoralization."
-Gaius Petronius, 1st Century AD
