I have posted the exim configuration file as
It (exim) is just forwarding to a smarthost - that's all it does, but when you
change evolution to use smtp direct to the smart host the BCC field behaves as
expected. It's only using "sendmail" as the means of delivery on the local
machine - which forwards to the smart host - that the BCC is visible to recipients.
Comment 2 Jeremy Katz 2003-08-31 23:16:07 EDT
Works just fine for me here with local sendmail, which is what we support.  This
is almost certainly exim's doing as evolution's pass off to sendmail is pretty
dead simple.
