Just to advise here.... I created a group email on our club web site with only me as the member. The address is
This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

I later sent out a group email to the club under the address This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., and also included the webguy address. I received the group email (since I am a club member) but not a copy at the webguy address. Puzzled was I until it hit me... I had put the webguy address into the BCC slot. Now, I know that FTH doesn't allow group emails to go out BCC, because I've gotten bad-boy bounce backs when I forgot and did so. HOWEVER, this time I not only didn't get the copy email, but I also didn't get a bounce-back message either. I then sent a single test message to the webguy address using the TO box. Yep, I got it right away, no problem at all.

Just thought I'd mention it. Could be a 'feature' that was never considered? ;-)

We made a conscious decision never to support bcc, it prevents a ton of spam from getting to our members.

I know... I realize and accept that as a great idea. I'm just letting you know that there was no bounce-back message like I'd received before when using the BCC for the members group address. Someone might try to use it and never know their email wasn't delivered. If there's a bounce-back on the one hand sholdn't there be one on the other as well? Maybe it should be fixed?

Depending on the source of the bcc email it can get caught in our traps or in your email providers trap. Gmail is notorious for stopping email to yourself through a 3rd party.

I suspect that Brian is correct, but I can look into this.

No BCC errors found in our email log for you. That does not indicate any bug... the tests for BCC are very old and well used / tested...

To me, it looks like your email did not get sent from you like you thought. Our log is pretty comprehensive.
