What exactly do you mean? Can you rephrase your question, please? Do you want to sieve certain incoming e-mails, where your e-mail address is in CC field to be moved to the specific folder?
BCC will never be possible as it is lost when arrives to your mailbox. BCC is only in SMTP envelope.

I too would like to filter on bcc content, and I can see bcc in the message in my mailbox when I do view source. Maybe it's only removed if it's not used?

Hi, Guys

The point of BCC is that other recipients should not see your email address as a fellow recipient. If YOU have received the email as a BCC recipient, then you should see a BCC field.

If you wish to set up a filter, I will need to know what email client you are using, and I will do what I can to help.

BCC is not sent, if there is no data in it.

Yes, that is the situation. I want to be able to filter messages in which I am the recipient in the bcc. The only thing is that sometimes it might be another address in the bcc which is then forwarded by the server to me. I'm not sure in that case if the bcc is still present.
We normally use Outlook 2007.

OK, this is not a straight forward thing, as Outlook does not offer "BCC" as an option when setting up the filters. However, set up your filter rule as you would if you were using the CC and To fields to select your criteria.

Once the rule is created, Click on the Edit Script button, where you will see the raw Sieve scripting. Select the line where it states:

if address :all :contains ["To", "Cc"]


And edit to read:

if address :all :contains ["To", "Cc", "Bcc"]


As long as there is no rule above it to contradict it, this should work to filter your BCC stuff out correctly. I will say though, that this is an unsupported change, so while it should work please don't experiment too wildly with the Sieve language, as it is very easy to mess up your sieve filters totally. IF that happens, we will ask you to delete them all and start again! Crying or Very Sad

Thanks, I will try it. It's not Outlook that is the limitation, it's Connect (or the Outlook Connector), yes? Webmail has the same limitation.

Actually, most email clients hide this functionality, so it is convention that it isn't included in the filter options. It's not a limitation of Kerio as such, more an expected limitation. I just needed to know your client version to be able to give you specifics.

If YOU have received the email as a BCC recipient, then you should see a BCC field.

You should never see a BCC field, unless you sent out the message yourself and put a copy into the Sent folder. You can only guess there was a BCC, if you receive mail that is not addressed to you, but that is about all.

Thanks, that seems to be working. I don't suppose it's possible to do a Bcc filter at the server end?

Hi, Beachmat

This is exactly what you are doing, by using the filter options on the Kerio tab. These filters are subsequently stored on the server.

On a related topic, is it possible to filter by return-path? Also to compare it to the sender or from fields?

Another issue is that these filters don't appear to work on messages that have arrived via a forwarding address on the server.
