Outlook 2013 BCC recipient sees my name in the To: field

Just started using OL 2013 for e-mail. I send quite a bit of e-mail with all recipients in BCC. Was surprised to discover that when recipients viewed my e-mails, my name was not only in the From field, but also in the To field.

When these same folks received e-mail from me using my previous e-mail program, "Recipient List Surpressed" showed up in the TO field.

I realized this is just an asthetics issue, but I think it looks kinda dumb.

Have poked around and Googled, but have seen no way to alter this.

Any ideas?

Thanks

Its a product default and what exactly do you want ? As you can create a dummy Contact and have that in the TO while sending out these emails

Yes, while Googling around on this I did see that particular workaround. I tried it by sending myself an e-mail with the dummy in the TO and my address in BCC. When I received it, I saw my name in the TO, hence this post.

Sorry, I meant I saw my name in the FROM.

Yes, I know what you about some e-mail systems are setup to either reject or mark as spam incoming e-mails that are sent with nothing in TO.

For me it was purely a looks issue.

Thanks for responding.
