BCC is immediately removed from the header, that's why it's called
*blind* carbon copy. The recipient of BCC will never see their own
mail address in the header, because it was stripped before sending
(that's also how mailing lists work, mostly). If you want the
carbon copy receiver's mail in the header, use CC instead. BCC shows
up in the header of the message that is put in the sent folder, though
(Sylpheed 2.2.9).
