don't want everyone to know who you sent it to.
I remembered at work, I sent an email to two people as BCC. However, the
other person who I didn't want to know that I included the other some how

I definitely remembered entering the bosses email address on the TO: and the
second person BCC:
Oh right, probably as you mentioned the <undisclosed recipient>.
The only person I would think has the rights is the admin.
I just sent myself a e-mail, with one address in the To: and another in the Bcc.
Both e-mails showed the To: address in the header, therefore the person you
bcc'd to would have been aware of the address of the person you placed in the
Both have to be in the BCC field for it to work. (everyone can see the TO:
field and the TO: receiver can see the BCC recipients.

Do you use filesharing networks? If so, please visit my online poll:

Alright, don't get your nickers in a twist. Gee some ppl.

Are you sure the To: receiver can see the BCC: recipients? That sounds
broken, and not RFC compliant.
Testing on a few clients and servers, both pop3 and smtp, I cannot view
contents of the bcc field.
