you could use the message tracking log, but it is only as good as the oldest log file you have

If I use the shell command which is mentioned below does the information gets exported to a file. If so where can I locate the file. I have run the script in shell but it returns nothing but goes to next prompt.

you want to run it like the following

Get-MessageTrackingLog -EventID Expand -ResultSize unlimited | where { $_.RelatedRecipientAddress -eq (Get-DistributionGroup <GroupName>).PrimarySmtpAddress }

you could then export to a file

Get-MessageTrackingLog -EventID Expand -ResultSize unlimited | where { $_.RelatedRecipientAddress -eq (Get-DistributionGroup <GroupName>).PrimarySmtpAddress } | export-csv c:\groupresults.csv
