Sendmail/Fetchmail not processing cc and bcc addresses


hey guys

i have just set up a mail server using sendmail, with fetchmail pulling our emails from the ISP. most emails work fine, but whenever someone is included as a cc or bcc, the emails fail to process and be delivered to the users' mailbox. they get delivered to me (postmaster) and i have to go through the headers and see who it was intended for, and forward it on.

does anyone know a solution??

i have tried using "fetchmail -E -d60", but that didnt work

Sorry, but your post isn't all that clear. Are you using single or multidrop for fetchmail - ie, are you picking up each user's email from their own mailbox or from one large one?

If multidrop, I don't see how bcc's would work without them being revealed to the recipient, which is clearly not the intention.

If singledrop, sounds like an issue in your .fetchmailrc.

From where are you starting fetchmail, and what's in that users .fetchmailrc

my apologies. i dont really understand it much, i got a friend to help set it up.

fetchmail is using multidrop, as far as i can understand

i only have one fetchmailrc file...
Code:
poll mail.myisp.com.au
proto POP3
port 110 nodns
localdomains sub.mydomain.com.au
envelope Delivery-To
user myusername with pass {password}
smtpaddress sub.mydomain.com.au
to * here

scratch that. BCC doesnt get thru, cos the address is not in the headers. any way around this?
