Leo - if the BCC list is really stripped when I receive an email sent to me via BCC, how come when I 'reply to all' - ALL of the BCC list gets my reply?
The information is in there somewhere....
Then there's a bug the sender's mail program, or the BCC wasn't really a BCC. (CC maybe, but not BCC). A reply to a message where people are BCCed should NEVER go to the originally BCCed recipients.
There was a bug in Outlook Express for Windows XP. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/887797
A few years ago when I was with a different agency, I could have sworn there were instances where email recipients had replied to emails, that had Bcc: recipients, using the Reply All feature and had their reply go to the Bcc: addressees, as well. or was I just dreaming?
I'm told there used to be a bug in Outlook Express that included the BCC recipients in the message headers. That, as I said, is a bug and has been fixed. Perhaps that's what you were remembering?
I'm using outlook express. Been told that every email that i send out is been Bcc to particular person. How do i check who d person and how to bypass it from bcc to that particular person.

Actually some e mail programs can reveal the BCCed persons. As a sender u can always see the BCCed person but the catch is when you are the recipient of a BCCed mail and you want to know that, if the sender has BCCed the mail when you are "TO".
I have a reverse problem: trying to check or reveal BCC recipients as a Sender for a message I Sent that a client claims they didn't receive. I have the original message in an OE folder. I tried File>Properties>Details>Message Source, but it shows no BCC recipients, only my email as blind "To:". I know others received this from their responses. Any ideas?
Hi, this is easy. Just hit reply all after you receive a email, then you will see all the To, CC and BCC recipients.
