Message tracking and BCC recipients RRS feed

  • Question

  • An email was sent yesterday by user1@domain.com to a bunch of people.

    HR want to know which of these people were BCC'd in the email and which were in the normal CC:/TO: field.

    I guess I can run get-messagetrackinglog but how can I differenciate between BCC, CC and TO recipients?

    Applies to Exchange 2007 Sp2.

  • Hi,

    Message track log cannot do that.

    You can simply access that mailbox to see the information if the message didn't deleted by user.

    Sometime we need record the message communication in the company just like in this case. That's why Exchange provides a new feature called "journaling".

  • Couldn't you simply open the user's mailbox and look at the item in the Sent Items folder?

    1. As far as I know, not possible with MT and smtp logging.
    2. In your case as the message has been already sent, check the message in the sent items of the users
    3. Or export that message out via the shell and check if you cant login as the user.
    4. Or use MFCMAPI and look at the msg properties, theasiet is point 2

  • Since its a single message track, you can follow Tony's choice. As sukh informed there in no option to track the email for your condition in MT :(

  • Hi

    Are we saying that Message tracking cannot differenciate between To/BCC/CC recipients or that it will not show BCC recipients at all?

    Message tracking doesn't know how the recipient is specified in the
    email, it only knows the set of addresses to which the message was
    sent. Whether the sender intended the recipients to see the complete
    set of recipients isn't important from the perspective of tracking the
    delivery of that message.
     
    All recipients are discoverable in the message tracking log.

    doesnt know the diff, even if you have smtp logging it will show recipients not Bcc
