When you add CC (carbon copy)addresses to an email, does your PC send out a serperate copy to each recipient or does the ISP's SMTP server do that for you.

Since there is only one copy in the Sent Items Folder I reckon it`s down to the ISP. Good question - why is it important?

I send a weekly update to my Lottery Syndicate members (which is set up as a Group in OE) but it is only sent once from my PC, so I guess the ISP does the rest.

As far as I know, it's done by the ISP.

On the ships I serve on we have Globe Wireless as the ISP for our email, & you get charged for the air time by the size of the message. We only get charged once, regardless of the number of recipients for messages which are .cc or .bcc, so in that case it's definitely the ISP

had a customer who received serveral copies of one email when it had been cc'd to about 12 other people. They were told by their ISP that it was a problem with their server, that made me wonder where were the cc'd copies actually created.

I beg to differ. I believe that your e-mail program sends multiple copies.

In the Tobit e-mail client, every copy sent appears in the Out box. Very annoying :o(
