Is it possible to Blind Carbon Copy (bcc) outgoing email, from specific accounts to another Exchange Mailbox? (configued on the Exchange 2003 Server side)

I have a aimple question, but I suspect the answer may be that it isn't possible.
To explain the situation, we are a patent law firm who regularly need to keep records of work being emailed in progress, in a central location that all the paralegals can access. My boss has requested that we setup a situation whereby when anyone of the patent attorneys sends an email (any email) it is silently bcc'd to a central mailbox called firstname.lastname@example.org internally, as well as being sent to the receipient. This way, anyone of our paralegals that works on a shift patern can access this one mailbox to ensure we are up to date on renewals, etc. They would be able to see the outbound mail of all of our attorneys in this shared mailbox, which our attorneys approve and there is no legal issue on (just to clarify!).
I could ask that the arrorneys just remember to bcc to this email@example.com address, but I know that some of them are an IT liability and this won't be a viable solution, as they'll forget.
I have also looked at other posts on EE, and am aware that there are ways to do this on the client side. If necessary I will pursue these means in Outlook, but this isn't a nice and clean / efficient way to to admin things - I rather there was something we could do on the Exchange Server, or use some kind of plugin with Exchange to achieve this.
I suspect my requests are too high and this may not be possible. I've used / worked with Exchange for years, and never been asked for this scenario. If anyone knows a great way of doing this, I'd be very grateful to hear from you!!
