Only by querying the message tracking logs. That will mean your results are only as good as the logs you have and how long they have been retained for.

Paul Cunningham has an excellent walk through on his blog here:

The logs in the message tracking section only show for mailboxes, not distrib lists. I'm lookin to see how much the distrib list is being used.

Message tracking should show everything. You need to look for the SMTP address of the group.
