This is the Sendmail TA - you'll probably have better luck with this Question in the General E-Mail TA, or one of the Micro$oft TAs. You can post a (free) request in the Community Support TA (http://www.experts-exchange.com/Community_Support/) and ask a Moderator to move this Question to a different TA. Be sure to include a link to this Question.

When sending, or try to send, an e-mail in Outlook Express using Bcc I get error 0x800CCC69, "Undisclosed-Recipient" is a "Failing Address".  I used this format for years, but when I started using peoplepc as my server I now get this error message.  Does this mean I will not be able to use Bcc ever again?

Hmmm...well, that may be closer to a sendmail question.

I suspect that Outlook is configured (or hardcoded) to put the string "undisclosed-receipients;" in the TO: field of the E-Mail when all the recipients have been BCCed. And I suspect that PeoplePC has configured their mailservers to reject this header, probably to stop spammers using their systems.

If I'm right, then one way around this it to put YOUR E-Mail address in the TO: field and everyone else in the BCC: field.

I did get the Feedback; its wonderful, and much appreciated.

It would be helpful if you went ahead and Closed this Question. That's separate from the Feedback. You should see "Accept" buttons next to each Comment. Just pick the one that was the best Answer. You'll be taken to the grading page - the grade you give does not affect your points.
