Exchange 2010 auto forwarding some mails without a rule being set

I currently run a 2010 exchange server,
I have two user that complain that their emails get automatically forwarded to another user.
For one person every email they send is cc'd to the third person but only random emails from the second user are cc'd to the third person.

I have checked for rules on both users outlook and owa systems, but none have been set.
I have also checked on the exchange server configuration transport setting but again no rules have been set there either.

The original mail recipient does not know that their mail has been forwarded and neither does the original sender.

The mail on the third person has no headers only stated that it has been autoforwarded

Any ideas would be good as people are now worried about email security

Thanks in advance

A couple of things you might want to do:
1) Check through any anti-virus/anti-spam software to ensure there's no forwarding going on there
2) Look at the emails in Exchange Message Tracking and see exactly how they're being routed to mailboxes
