    BCC option (Outlook 2000)

    Is there a way (via a macro or otherwise) to see the BCC distribution list on an e-mail that you receive? If you hit "reply all" button your reply will go to all the BCC list members and that is sometime annoying.
    Thanks.

    Re: BCC option (Outlook 2000)

    Are you perhaps confusing CC and BCC? It would defeat the whole purpose of BCC if a recipient could see who was BCC'd. Perhaps there is a server setting that permits it, but I know I can't "Reply All" to BCC's in my company's generally out-of-the-box Exchange Server setup.

    No, I am not confusing BCC with CC... I am just curious if you can find the BCC distribution list in case the e-mail was BCC-ed to you.

    I think Jefferson investigated this fully and the answer was no.

    There was a bug in Outlook 97, I believe, that listed all the BCCs. Needless to say, it was fixed long ago. If you view the message headers (with a message open, View>Options) you will see that even you are not listed as a BCC; your address appears only in the server-to-server hand-off lines at the top of the headers, if anywhere.
