Hi there,


My boss wants to auto bcc some colleagues emails to his email box (both in and out), however, if the colleague is send or cc to him, he will have 2 that email since auto bcc works. It goes terrible if that's a group email discussion, he will get 10+ or 100+ same emails if that group discussion get reply from colleague A, B, C, D...


Is there any way to filter such emails to drop all duplicated emails? I mean, the case below is, Colleague A, B, C, D all in and out emails will auto BCC to BOSS.

1. if colleague A send out, cc B, C, D, and Boss, in Boss email ac will only have 1 that email. (Now is 5 emails)

2. then colleague B reply to A, C, D and Boss, in Boss email ac will only have 1 that email sent by B. (Now is 5+ emails)

3. if colleague C send to A, B, D. Auto BCC works, in Boss email ac will have 1 that email. (Now is 4 emails)

4. if colleague A reply to C, B, D. Auto BCC works, in Boss email ac will have 1 that email sent by A. (Now is 4+ emails)


Thanks a lot for your reply and advise.

Hi there,

Hope I won't get the wrong meaning from you, the archive function is just to archive emails to archive place, right? But what I mean is, automatically delete duplicated emails cause by auto BCC function. Is there a way that Archive can achieve it? Thanks.

Hello @Acumen System,

The Archive feature can be used to automatically save incoming, outgoing, and mailing list messages for all email accounts under a domain. It can be used as an alternative to setting up a filter that automatically adds an email address as a bcc recipient.

Thank you.

Thanks for your reply. But I think this is not the thing I need. As I need some users' email (in and out) automatically bcc to my boss, with that auto bcc function, I also need the auto filter to drop all duplicated emails generated by auto bcc which I stated my scenario at the top.

I am very appreciate your help, please kindly advise if that's possible since my boss keeping stand at my back.. help..

Hello @Acumen System,

There's no native feature in cPanel & WHM that will enable that specific configuration. You'd need to create a custom Exim system filter rule. While assistance with that level of customization is unsupported, we do have an existing thread you can reference at:

Hidden copies of incoming and outgoing emails

If you need additional help, I recommend reaching out to a system administration service provider, or to the Exim-Users mailing list:

System Administration Services | cPanel Forums
Exim-users Info Page

Thank you.
