Yes, Exim doesn't. Apparently they consider that a feature...
So you you're the recipient of a Bcc:'d mail, you can see to whom it
Yes. I never used Exim myself, but there was a long thread about
that on Mutt lists some time ago. The official position of the Exim
developers was that RFC 821 actually discourages MTAs to mess with the
headers passed to them by the MUAs, and that RFC 822 (which requires the
contents of "Bcc:" to be removed before delivery) only applies to MUAs,
not MTAs. Consequently, Mutt was added an N + 1st option, that disables
writing "Bcc:" to outgoing messages.
