I thought the point of bcc was that it is always hidden, So how come I can see the bcc field on this email from ElectricKiwi?

 

misconfiguration on their side?

I was always under the impression that only the recipient who was BCC'd was blind? You can see if and email that was addressed to yourself was BCC'd to someone else but they can't see any other recipients?

 

A consultant I work with sends out a monthly newsletter and it is BCC'd to all. Therefore none of us know who their other clients are.

I've always thought that BCC addresses could not be seen by anyone, including those in TO and CC.

 

Perhaps your email was an original that was Forwarded ?

So Who can see What?

 

Here is an example email addressed to nine people:

 

Bcc example

 

Ahmed, Barry and Carol can all see that the email was sent to Ahmed, Barry and Carol for their attention and they can also see that a copy of the email was sent to Darren, Elaine and Fred.

 

Darren, Elaine and Fred can all see that the email was sent to AhmedBarry and Carol for their attention and they can also see that a copy of the email was sent to DarrenElaine and Fred

 

Gunter, Harriet and Ian can all see that the email was sent to AhmedBarry and Carol for their attention and they can also see that a copy of the email was sent to DarrenElaine and Fred

It doesn't appear to be a forward and previous bills all show the same bcc field

Thought it was strange considering only the sender should see that field
