On an Exchange 2007 Server I had all mail to a certain user (call him Mr. Smith) fowarded to a distribution group and the mail was not retained in the original recipient's email box.  There was a problem with the distribution email got bounced back to the sender.  Is there any way to retrieve the messages that were sent to Mr. Smith that were bounced back?
Thanks.

This won't be able to show you the NDR that have happened but you can have NDR's forwarded to something like a postmaster address and send another email and see what it says.

Well here is decent walkthrough on message tracking:

Haven't tried it in a situation like yours but I would imagine it would still work. It won't show you the actual NDR but it should show you the error.

Unless your archiving messages or have NDR's being forwarded to another account there really isn't a way to read them.

You could ask the sender for a copy of the NDR if he received one.
