Exchange 2016 - Distribution Group Emails not seeing primarysmtp address in Message Tracking Log RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm trying to build a powershell script that can tell me how many times emails have been sent to a Distribution Group email list, the problem is when I test this out in our Exchange 2016 server, Message Tracking log doesn't always show the event.

    From my tests I've sent an email from outside my organization in to the email address for one of my distribution groups. When I pull the message tracking log in Exchange powershell, it just looks like I emailed everyone individually in the log (I see Deliver events, but I don't see the Expand events or the primarysmtpaddress of the distribution group showing in the message tracking log.
