How can regular users (non-admin) view query-based distribution group membership in Exchange 2003?

1) With static groups, end-users used to be able to select properties to view group membership. With query-based groups this is not an option. How do they know who they are sending to?

2) I realize that Q-BDG's are dynamic in nature, however after a message is sent it is mailed to a static number of addresses. How can I determine who a Q-BDG e-mail was sent to?

You can't in both scenarios.
Even if you had a group where you added and removed the members yourself, that still wouldn't show who got the message. If the group changed, when you clicked on the message you would see the CURRENT group membership, not the membership at the time.

The only way to store who got the message at the time it was sent is to expand the group.

There is no way to expand a query-based distribution group. You can only expand regular (static) distribution groups. Can anyone prove otherwise?
If it is critical to you that you know who the message was sent to, then you cannot use query based distribution groups. You will have to create the groups and then expand them.

I missed that it was query based - you used an acronym that isn't common in the Exchange community.
