You could refer to the tracking.log folder files and use something like grep.exe to find for keywords.  Keep in mind that keywords you could search for can be send email address, recipient email address and subject.

For Exchange 2003, you need to check out ExMerge. Its a native Exchange 2003 tool on the system. It scans each mailbox and can dump the email to a PST. Painfully slow because you'll need to go through all your mailboxes.
