I can't reproduce either bug in 10.6.6.

Hi Graham, I've got the same configuration that you have and so I've the same problem. Did you get any solution about this issue?
Thank you in advance.

Generally such things are dependent upon the SMTP and server, and not Mail. I don't have any Exchange accounts, but for example, if I send with Bcc using my Gmail account, the Bcc header is only viewable in the Sent on the sending computer, but is not when viewed on another computer. If resynced it will likely no longer be viewable on any computer -- I have previously confirmed this behavior with Gmail.
However, with MobileMe IMAP and other IMAP I have it is available in the Sent.
This is not the action of Mail, but of the particular server.

Any update to this issue? I can see BCC in the Sent folder only for non-Exchange accounts. I have three Exchange accounts (different servers and domains) and none will show the BCC list I used on an email.

This is certainly still a problem, of sorts. It has to do with Exchange connections, not IMAP/SMTP, so please refrain from commenting on that. The bcc field will be visible via OWS or Outlook, it's just Mail.app that doesn't see it correctly. It's just not there, not in the raw headers either. But other exchange clients can see it, even though it was sent via Mail.app. This has been reported since 2010, so it's not a new problem either.

How is it that a known bug like this can go on for 2 years and 2 versions of OS? I'm running Mountain Lion and just switched from Exchange Server 2007 to 2010 and immediately lost my bcc's in sent mail. Is there a way to elevate things in the known bug category?

i have 10.8, and gmail.
i can't see the BCCs on mail i sent out. just the TO field.
i have set the Custom prefs.
i have looked with "full headers", that's not the solution or the problem.
why is this even a problem and it's been there forever.
fix this please.

It is not the Mail app determining this, but the Gmail SMTP. I just tested with 10.8.4 and sending from Gmail, and the Bcc header is seen in the Sent folder on that sending computer.
As stated in an earlier post it is not seen on another device, nor is it to bound with the Webmail interface to Gmail.
It does not seem to be any failure of the Mail app.

then how to fix. i am using Mail on a Mac. i don't use web interface for gmail or anything.
no Bcc list in my Sent mail folderbox.
Currently Being ModeratedAug 21, 2013 10:37 AM (in response to Ian Allen)
There is no way to fix, so long as the Mailbox Behaviors are set to store Sent Mail on the server. Once the Gmail server is again synced with, the Bcc header disappears.
If you were to not care to have the Sent Mail folder stored only locally on the Mac, then I believe the Bcc would stay there. But that defeats the benefit on an IMAP account. If you were to have ever used Gmail in POP access, then it would have worked.

and i just did the silly workaround where ya save the email as a Draft first then reopen it then send it out,
AND THE BCC FIELD EXISTS JUST FOR THIS ONE EMAIL in my Sent box.
and what about the Bcc fields of all my other past emails? are they getting lost? are they in my old mail (archival 'base) or are they getting lost. i am sending AND saving the mail all on my mac.. why is gmail 'causing' this..
and.. most important: HOW TO FIX THIS. i want to see the Bcc in the mail i have Sent.
the "save as Draft thing and reopen before sending each email" 'workaround' is not a solution..
also, please: tell me briefly how to use forums to deal with such things as this.. how to 'reply' or where&how to submit my problem description.
sorry for any heatedness, part of it is that i don't know if i'm talking to anyone or not or what.. and, this prob has been around since 2008 (googling), though with microsoft mail involved.. not gmail until about 2011.
thanks, i just don't have any more lifetime to give to apple and microsoft and google being an unpaid beta tester..
