To track for each recipient, try..
$SVR = Get-ExchangeServer | where {$_.IsHubTransportServer -eq "true"} | sort-object Name
$(Foreach ($User in GC c:\user.txt){
$SVR | get-messagetrackinglog -Recipients:$User -EventID "RECEIVE" -Start "26/06/2013 17:11:00" -End "26/08/2014" -resultsize unlimited | select-object Timestamp,MessageSubject,Sender,@{Name="Recipients";Expression={$_.recipients}},totalbytes
}) | export-csv "c:\export.csv"

what exchange version are you running?
Instead of :
Get-ExchangeServer | where {$_.IsHubTransportServer -eq "true"}
why not simply use :
Get-TransportServer | Get-MessageTrackingLog

A simplified version of your command (without selecting fields etc works like this
$(foreach ($User in GC C:\tmp\userlist.txt) {Get-TransportServer | Get-MessageTrackingLog -Recipients $User })
Should you be charging more for IT Services?

I'm more used to 2010 but I've just checked and get-trasportserver is supported in both 2007 and 2013 and it certainly seems easier than having to create a server variable.

In the accepted answer, you could just try removing the first line completely and changing the $SVR in line 3 to get-transportserver
This shouldn't change the end result but makes the script more efficient and also more readable.

I wouldn't mind using Get-ExchangeServer or Get-TransportServer unless there are 1000's of servers to query (Even that wont be a problem I guess).. In my environment, I have ~190 exchange servers and around ~36 HUB servers. Both the commands returns the results in a fraction of seconds.. :-)
