    BCC and Reply All (any)

    In the Email Essentials newsletter, a point was made about not using BCC because when you "Reply All" a reply may be sent to everyone -- including those that were BCC'd. I think I am just slow on the uptake here -- or I am having a mental block. But I guess the fear here is that if a recipient of a BCC email Reply All's, then everyone know that he/she received a BCC. There is still no way for the "To" or "CC" recipients to Reply All and figure out who got BCC'd -- is there?

    I hope that all makes some sense...

    Nope. There was a bug in Outlook 97 that included BCC information in the message header, but since that was fixed, Outlook BCCs really are invisible to the recipients.

    Having finally taken the time to read WEE, it works like this example:

    I send a message to Jefferson and BCC you. You want to reply to me but hit Reply to All out of habit and include Jefferson in your reply. He now knows you were BCC'd on the message i sent to him.
