BCC has been abused mightily by spammers, such that ISPs have no choice but to filter BCC'd messages. No business should be relying on BCC'd email to communicate. Fortunately there are scads of *legitimate* solutions available for doing mass/broadcast mailing without using the BCC field. AutoresponsePlus.com is my favorite, but just google a bit you'll find plenty of options. Or check WilsonWeb.com for reviews of some of the better-known choices.

I hope someone can knows of any articles or documents relating to this.
