No. SMTP is a plaintext protocol, using store-and-forward methods. What this means: Plaintext: Every server that relays this message sees it in its entirety, including all header information. Although each recipient in the BCC field typically gets their own e-mail (so the server sends out a customized e-mail where all the other BCC recipients should be ...

Any mail transfer agent (MTA) that fully complies with RFC 2822 (specifically, section 3.6.3, Destination address fields) will remove the Bcc: field from the header before attempting delivery, making it impossible for the non-blind recipients to determine the blind recipients' identities. There are a couple of catches: Unless you have control over the ...

From: http://www.russharvey.bc.ca/resources/email.html Few things are as irritating as receiving a message your e-mail address listed along with others for people you don't know. Not only is this poor etiquette, but it also invites misuses of those addresses by any of the recipients or anyone they might forward the message to. When people provide ...

There is no such thing as a "BCC field"; BCC in email is performed by adding the recipient to the envelope but not the headers, which means that they are undetectable unless the email server is explicitly configured to reveal them somehow.

You should never assume that the recipients won't become aware of the BCC recipient. I've had BCCed recipients hit "Reply All" in their mail program, and announce to everyone their receipt of a mail before, in a stunning lack of understanding of what being BCCed actually meant. If you really need it to be private, forward the message from your Sent folder ...

You could install a local mail client to manage the Gmail account instead of doing everything through the web-interface. For example, Thunderbird can be extended with the plugin Use BCC instead, which does exactly what you want. After installing it, you have to go to the settings and configure it the way you want (probably click on "send all mails as BCC")

In the internet headers, you should see a line Received by: xyz for <your email addr>.

CC exposes your email list to everyone who receives it. This invites harvesting of the addresses by spammers. These references might help: http://www.us-cert.gov/cas/tips/ST04-008.html http://www.itsecurity.com/features/25-common-email-security-mistakes-022807/ point 7. There are issues with BCC especially if the email server does not remove the BCC ...

Sorry Julia, but it seems that functionality was not developed yet. The closest thing you have to stop that kind of auto-complete for new addresses is in Gmail settings: Click the cog at the right top corner and click Settings which will lead you to the Gerenal tab. Scroll down until you see Create contacts for auto-complete and choose the option I'll add ...

If these mistakes are realised within 30 seconds of initiating a send, use of Google labs "Undo Send" might be of help. Find instructions to enable and customise it's settings below: Click Gmail's Settings Cog (top right above your main inbox listing). Note you may need to scroll down the page if you use, for example, the Gmail labs "Multiple Inboxes") ...

Open a new e-mail message and click on the Options tab: In the Show Fields area click the Bcc button: Henceforth you should see the field always when composing mails Source

I'm guessing your question is how to see the BCC list after an email is sent in Outlook? Outlook 2007, 2010 and 2013 shows it when you "pop" the email (when you expand it). So, in the sent items, double click on the sent email to open it in it's own window and you will see the full To, CC and (if used) BCC details
