    Eagle, we appreciate the message, and even if the story itself is not true, the post points out two good messages, one of courtesy (removing forward info before forwarding a message to others), and the other of safety (being extremely cautious and protective of your identity while online).

    So what does the bcc actually do?

    bcc stands for "blind carbon copy". Just as with paper correspondence, a bcc means that no one else knows you received a copy of the correspondence. With email, you can send a message to a long list of folks using the bcc feature, and no one sees the whole list of addresses to whom the message was sent. This serves two purposes: (1) it keeps the header cleaner, because you don't have a long list of names, and (2) it keeps your recipients' email addresses private so that they can't be harvested by someone to whom the message may be subsequently forwarded.
