If you use a Microsoft Exchange Client to query the information store on Bcc address properties, the query does not yield any results. This is expected behavior, unless you view items that are in the Sent Items folder on the information store, or any other "pre-send" messages, such as drafts or messages that are moved from the Sent Items folder to other folders. Exchange Server 5.5 does not provide results for a query if the query is based on the Bcc address property.


This behavior was originally implemented based on overly stringent security decisions.
