Message sent succesfully but copy generated to MultipleRecipients

Spam does get though once in awhile

But in a 3 hour window, numerous Spam got through the Mail marshal filters. These messages were addressed to one recipient, but upon Queuing, they were delivered to all mailboxes in the same Mailbox Store.

The users received the emails in outlook addressed to the original recipient. There was no other users in the To:/CC:/BCC: fields and the internet headers did not show any.  The Mailbox has no relaying rules.

How can this happen?  how Can we track it more easily and how can we stop it from happening in the future?

This is a concern on two fronts:
1) If this is a function of the Spam, we need to update our filter
2) If this happened internally, are there other sentsitive emails have been routed incorrectly?

Attached is the screen shot of the Message tracking Center.

Thanks for your help!

BCC. Remember spam headers are false. You cannot rely on them. Common spammers trick is to have a single line in the TO field and the rest in the BCC.
