Hi

We are using Exchange 2003 SP2.

An internal user sent an email to some other recipients, some of which don't appear on the To: list in Outlook. I would like to find out if they were BCC'd (which is what I expect)...however, Exchange Message Tracking doesn't show this...

Is there anyway I can find out?

I think these is no way to do that , That is what the Undiscloed recipient means. Exchange doesn't show the undisclosed recipient.

Maybe if you enable BCC journaling you can you will be able to find the information you want.

How about the IIS log on the Exchange server that shows the protocol information (RCPT TO: etc) - would that be any help?

If the message was sent internally, it won't be in any form of IIS/SMTP log files. Internal messages are submitted using MAPI and handled through Exchange's own protocols and communications mechanisms.
The only time the message would break out into a log file is if it were sent to another mail system which logged SMTP traffic, it would be recorded on that mail server's logs.

The only easy way has already been suggested - BCC journalling. Standard message-only journalling, but with a registry tweak to capture BCC'd recipients.
