    No, because your e-mail client doesn't get the Bcc header to know what

    other "blind" copies were sent to recipients other than yourself.

    Either the sender chose not to divulge the e-mail addresses of all

    recipients or those recipients requested that their e-mail address be

    divulged to just anyone the sender wants to send their e-mails.

    When specifying multiple recipients in the To and/or Cc headers, all

    those recipients can see (and harvest) the e-mail addresses of all the

    other included recipients. This is a privacy concern. They may want

    the sender to send his e-mail to them but they don't want to get e-mails

    from anyone else on that list, especially considering those other

    recipient's could expose their e-mail address in newsgroups or signup at

    sites known to harvest e-mail addresses, like coupon and contest sites

    along with some game sites. They want or will tolerate e-mail from the

    sender. They don't want e-mails from everyone else on that list.

    Imagine if ALL recipients were Bcc'ed. That means you have NO e-mail

    addresses in the e-mail that you received. So to whom would you reply

    (other than the sender)?

    No. When you don't know who was BCC'd, your mail client wont know either.


    Do you keep Outlook open 24/7? Vote in our poll:
