I have Outlook Express and need to see the BCC recipients of e-mails I have sent; I have tried the above method of checking the details tab on the properties of the e-mail, but it doesn't work; the BCC remains hidden. Perhaps Microsoft has removed this entry of the panel in a recent update. When you can't see to whom you sent your own messages, data protection has surely gone too far...
In Outlook 2003,
Open the sent message from the Sent folder;
View => Header (toggles on/off)
bcc will appear
Leo, I think you are not answering the question that was asked, "I want find the list of "undisclosed recipients" of the email I've received in outlook. Is there any way?". Take a look at following link http://crypto.stanford.edu/portia/papers/bb-bcc.pdf
I understand that you can't see anyone in the bcc: list if you are the recipient, but what about if you're the sender?
I sent an e-mail to a long list of recipients in the bcc: field but forgot to include an attachment. how can i bring back up the e-mail, add the attachment, and resend it to all the same recipients?
nice information about undisclosed recipients. i also have some information about undisclosed recipients.
You say: 'The information about who the email was sent to is not included in the email.' Therefore it can't be delivered to me. End of ALL SPAM - YIPEE!!!
I'm sorry to tell you that you are wrong. The RFC 821 describing the SMTP protocol sates clearly that the addresses of the receipients are part of the "DATA" field (RFC 821, Page 5). The "DATA" field is sent to all receipient-SMTP agents. Having access to the SMTP-agent gives you also access to the full list of receipient users, independently if they are To Cc or Bcc users. Most of the Mail Systems handle the received mail in order to deliver mails without the whole list of Bcc receipients. But how can you rely on a statement that says "most of the systems do so" ?
If you want to be sure that the receipients receive the mail without getting the possibility to know who else received the same mail then you must use a mail distribution program that sends one mail to each of the receipients in a given list.
I have more than one email address. How can I tell which one an email was sent to. I use Outlook 2007. If an email address gets too much spam, I like to kill it off, but I need to know who is using it.
The article and comments were helpful and I know how to use "undisclosed recipients" and the bcc field but is there a way for me, the sender, to see who I actually sent it to after it's gone? Thanks!
But what if I am a BCC: addressee? Right now when I receive that type of email its confusing, because it shows a TO: (who is not me) but no BCC: (who is me). And I can't figure out how (or if) I can get my received email to show me as a BCC: so I'd know why I received an email addressed to someone else.
To post a comment on "How do I view the list of BCC'ed recipients on an email I've received?", please return
