You were exactly correct on the BCC issue.  After going through log files, 
email is being sent to them as well.  Again, thank you ...

If you have the Internet headers already, you can check without going through 
the logfiles and obtain an answer with a fairly high degree of certainty. If a 
user receives an email message and is not listed in the To: or CC: headers 
(either specifically or via a distribution list), then they were BCC'ed.
 
(There are some other conditions that can cause it to occur: an Outlook 
forwarding rule from someone who is on the To: or CC: header, alternate 
recipients specified, some other pathological situations, but that is most of 
them. Going through the logfile could eliminate these as possibilities.)

http://www.MSExchange.org/ You very well may be correct, I had not thought of 
that ... I assume if I go through the log files, I should see this?
 
Thank you for your help

They were very like BCC'ed (blind copy).

I am a newbie as an exchange administrator with an odd problem. Running
Exchange 2000, with Symantec for virus protection. I have 2 users that
are receiving email addressed to another user in the firm. Their name
is not part of the "to" field in Outlook, yet they receive the email.
The email is spam. Where or how do I begin to figure this out? Or, can
someone refer me to an article that would help. I have made a copy of
the internet headers via Outlook/options for IP lookup.

Thank you for your help
