You can resolve this problem by using the updated Internet Mail service, provided with the Internet Mail Enhancement Patch for Microsoft Outlook 97. The Internet Mail Enhancement Patch (IMEP) is available on the following Microsoft Internet site:


Microsoft has confirmed this to be a problem in the Internet Mail service that shipped with Microsoft Outlook 97.

More Information

The header information for an Internet Mail messages contains routing information, and often does not display with the message. Additionally, some mail clients or transports, such as the Microsoft Exchange Server Internet Mail Connector, remove BCC information from the message header.

The BCC issue only applies to using Outlook with the Internet Mail service and a Post Office Protocol 3 (POP3) mail server. This issue does not apply when you use Outlook with the Microsoft Mail service or the Microsoft Exchange Server service, and their appropriate mail servers.
