    True, but it is my understanding, please correct me if I am wrong, that with
    Postfix, the BCC-option forces a copy of the email (regardless of which user
    sent it) to be delivered to a single email-address?
    This would, at least the way I see it, mean that the filtering only needs to
    be done by a single user (the owner of the bcc-email address).

    Eg:
    Email client
       |
    Postfix -> external SMTP-server
      |
    BCC to <bcc-user>@mydomain
     |
    Postfix
      |
    filtering tool for user "bcc-user"
      |
    delivery into senders "sent" folder
    sender is determined by checking the "mail-from" header

    True, but I tend to, when I at least have a theory, to also answer with my
    theory. I hope my reply made it clear that I was not 100% certain? :)
