If a sender sends an email to multiple recipients and a record request has been requested, Is there a way to search for the email and all the recipients it was sent to in Exchange 2007?

Thank you,
Bill

Have a look at
Get-messageTrackinglog
To find the message and then
Get-messageID
to see details about the message.

Another option is to use the "get-mailbox" cmd and then pipe the Export-Mailbox parameter. Check these out for more details

you don't need to put in the full path to the DB as you did above, i.e. just put the DB name in instead and if you are unsure of how the system sees the database name, just run Get-MailboxDatabase and it will list all database names.

 
as per this article http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/bb123685(EXCHG.80).aspx these are the valid input values that you can use to designate the database, but like I said above just put in the database name instead of the full path and name and you should be good to go.

* GUID of the database

** Database name

** Server name\database name

** Server name\storage group\database name

NOTE: If you do not specify the server name, the cmdlet will search for the database on the local server. If you have multiple databases with the same name on the same server, you must specify the storage group.

I tried all 3, the database is on a different drive could that be the problem?

 The command Get-MailboxDatabase brings back the name as Mailbox Database

1. Since the database contains a space within the name be sure to wrap it in quotes. i.e. "Mailbox Database" else it will fail

2. To ensure nothing else is wrong with the command run a quick test , i.e. enter  

Get-Mailbox -Database "Mailbox Database"

3. If that works then the full command should work as well with the "" but try the short command first to rule out any problem with accessing the DB info
