you mean the Bcc field is just in the smtp conversation between smtp servers?

after the ehlo?
and then its never saved?
is that it?
the recieving mail server has to have access to the Bcc field at some point to 
deliver the message. right?

No, the Exchange server has no knowledge of the BCC field. When the e-mail 
clients sends the messages, it takes the addresses listed in the TO, CC, BCC 
and FROM fields and uses that as part of the communication. The BCC field is 
never part of the actual message.
