Exchange - move address from CC to BCC on sending

I’m hoping someone can help me on this one.

We would like the ability for users to choose to have their e-mails checked before they are sent.    So I have set up a mail flow rule where if the address ‘moderation@abc.com’ is in the CC box then it will be sent to ‘user@abc.com’ for approval and release.
This works perfectly, but on the sent mail there is the moderation address in the CC field, which we don’t want the recipient to see.
The Moderation address can’t be put in the BCC field initially or the rule won’t work.

Is it possible in any way to strip that address out so the end recipient cannot see it?

A rule to move ‘moderation@abc.com’ to BCC field if it is in CC?

A rule to strip out the moderation CC altogether?

I can’t see an option in there for this, so wondering if anyone has a custom rule idea for it?

Thanks.

Exchange cannot do it.
You would need to use header rewriting to remove/change the header information.

The moderation feature of Exchange is really designed to used for all traffic - therefore the original message isn't touched. Neither the sender or recipient would have any clue that the message had been moderated.
