    Default Weight message that aren't addressed to recipient?

    Hi All,

    Is it possible to give an e-mail that isn't to, cc, or bcc, the recipient a higher spam score? If so, what would be the best way to do it?

    Edit: Boy, my grammar skills are really working today!

    Why would you even accept messages that aren't addressed to a valid recipient?

    The problem is we're receiving spam that, in the headers, doesn't display the recipient's e-mail address. I'm not sure if this is due to the spam being BCCed to the recipient, but typically the headers will show a "To: x@x.x" that is random and not even part of our domain.

    If I'm BCCed an e-mail, would the BCC show in the e-mail's headers?

    Another question is...

    How does BCC work, exactly? Where do the BCC addresses get stripped from the headers? When the e-mail reaches it's destination?

    The MTA (Postfix) handles all of the details like header re-writing and transferring to the correct addresses.
