The problem is that when you send a big message with about a thousend BCC's the exim creates a single process to handle it and leaves no trace what the process is doing

Is there any way to see how many recipients did this process processed ?

Go on, have a guess
Yes, as I said, you'd need to look in the exim mainlog - it should all be in there with the transaction log for the message ID(s).

exim -bp

exim -bp

will show you the exim queue.. it should list the particular email message in question and all the email addresses it's being sent to.

the ones that have already been delivered will be tagged, I believe with a "D"
the remaining ones stay in queue until the timeout (72 hours?), then a bounceback is generated listing the undeliverables--the bounceback is probably cought by phpbb and disgarded
