Besides, I've always found fcc useless.  It doesn't expand local user
names, e.g. `to: ralph' stays like that instead of becoming `to:
address@hidden', and there's no message-id which is vital for
referring someone back to an earlier email.  I dcc myself and file that
copy instead.  It too doesn't keep track of invisible recipients but
then that's good because of the forwarding danger Paul points out.  I
suppose some meta-data outside of the email file could keep track of
such things in son-of-MH.
