    I need to extract BCC recipients information over last 15 days from the logs for a user account that sent out email from the server.

    In exim_mainlog all address are listed as for, and I can't find a fix pattern to sort the recipient on the basis of To:, CC: or BCC:.

    Is there as way or pattern to watch, or method to extract the BCC information?

    Current log_selector is defined as:

    log_selector = +arguments +subject +received_recipients

    Thanks in advance for providing useful information in this regard.

    From what I can see, simply enabling received_recipients does not show if the message was sent as a bcc one to a recipient. The only discussion I could really find was the following:

    detecting a bcc message | exim | users

    This is from 2006 and the names of the ACLs appear to have changed. I would highly suggest posting on exim.org mailing list for this question, since they are the experts on what options are available.

    Thanks Tristan, you gave me a point to start with, for the past logs.

    BTW few years back, we deployed unseen delivery as

    to catch all incoming and outgoing email.

    Is there a way to catch and list bcc recipients in real time using similar method?
