Users are receiving other users' e-mail

Hi,

Recently, 1 or 2 of my users have been receiving e-mail which has been meant for other user.

For example, User 1 receives an e-mail from a client but user 2 also receives a copy.

User 2 is not mentioned/listed in the e-mail, there is nothing apparent in AD and having done searches there are no rules etc which would cause this. My only thought would be if the sender BCC's in user 2 (which seems unlikely in the e-mails I've seen).

Has anyone come across this in the past? We're running Exchange 2000 with Surfcontrol E-mail filter v6.

Thanks in advance!

Hi ormerodrutter, user 2 does not always receive a copy of user1's e-mail, which leads me to believe that there is no forwarding in place. I've also checked the forwarding settings, etc and there is nothing there.

So it is either BCC (which you already mentioned) or email groups (mentioned by Bertling). I assumed User2 is not the adminnistrator (so even bad mail is going to him/her)?

I agree it could be BCC, as I have checked the groups and there shouldn't be anything there which duplicates/forwards e-mail. User2 is not the administrator either.

Thanks for your comments!
