1.  Can't - BCC info is not passed on to the recipient.
2.  You can remove the dupes after they arrive, but I don't believe there is an automatic method for removing dupes in OE.
3.  You would need a third-party add-on to remove emails based on certain types of attachments.  My suggestion is to create a rule that moves all emails with attachments to a certain folder so they are not accidentally opened.  You will know to inspect these carefully before opening.  Also make sure the preview window is not used since it can launch viruses.

By the way, you have quite a few open questions still hanging out.  One is as old as 8/7/01.  Could you clear some of these up by accepting comments or remaining active in them?
