How can I view the BCC list on eMails I receive?

Robbo December 16, 2010

Is there a way that I can access somebody’s BCC list when they send me an eMail?

    I'm afraid you can't. Not disclosing the recipients is the purpose of BCC, hence 'Blind Carbon Copy'. The recipients are not supposed to find out who else received the eMail and the information is not included in that eMail.

    The only way to find out would be if you had access to the computer or eMail account the mail was sent from. You would look into the Sent folder, find that eMail, and then find the recipients listed in the BCC field. That would likely involve illegal activity, though.

        It's good you asked. Many people are not aware that BCC even exists. :)
