Put the headers out of your mind. Just regard your email address being in
a to: or cc: field merely as a courtesy. If your address is not in one of
those fields, then the email has been sent to you using a mechanism that
you can considered to be called "blind carbon copy".
You will not see a bcc: field in incoming messages. It is there in your
mail editor for outgoing messages merely as an easy method of passing the
destination address to the mail sending software whilst keeping it out of
the mail headers.
