No Recipients in Message Tracking

Hi,

Got an email from someone today saying to ignore their earlier email.  What email?  I looked at the message tracking on the exchange server and there is in-fact a receive event at the right time, with the correct message subject, but no one got the email?  The recipients field (in message tracking)is blank, which is why I'm guessing no-one got the email.  In-fact there are two email sent from this person this morning without recipient information.  All subsequent emails from this sender have recipient information however.  I should point out that this is an external email.  Has anyone got any idea how this has happened.  Is it a fault with the sender, or my exchange?

The e-mails may have bcc-recipients on them, which could cause them to have no recipient and no cc-recipients and still be delivered.

Unless you check the senders original e-mail it's hard to find out which recipients he/she sent to using bcc.

They may have initiated a recall of the message from their outlook?

The emails were forwarded to the Quarantine mailbox by the exchange spam settings.  Not very obvious, but eventually found them

Either change the spam scores or look in the qurantine folder more often
