Faking a "Sent" Msg in Outlook - possible?
I believe that a colleague of mine has somehow faked that he sent a message in Outlook (2003.) We work for a huge global company using Outlook on global enterprise.

Anyway, was on conference call, boss pinned colleague down who claimed that he
had sent an email to our group. After call boss sends to all of us the supposed email that colleague sent. It was inside of another "forward" message and looked odd but did have "sent" and date/time. I checked properties and it said "Received " prior to "Sent" Nobody on the email subject (a group of about 12) received the email. Some of us think he faked it. Boss doesn't understand technology enough (nor do I) and accepts the message just got "lost" somehow - but it was just 2 weeks ago. I've worked for this company for 10 years and NEVER had one message missing like this - let alone an important one.

I KNOW the guy faked it, just don't know how. It appears like it was sent. Of course, no recipient got it AND the guy says he now deleted it and no longer exists. (pure BS)

He did something by forwarding and altering ...

How can I prove it? HELP. Thanks!
