I always use BCC for sending mail when sending to more then one person. 
No one needs to know how many people I sent the same message to, and if I
send it to multiple people outside of the company, I don't wany someone
getting others email address to SPAM them or involve them in
unappropriate discussions.  I send it to myself in the To: field and BCC:
everyone else I send the message to.  It also keeps people from hitting
reply all when they only need to reply to me and sending their reply to
the entire group.  I really wish everyone would do this personally!! 
Blocking BCC for most things would in my opinion a BAD idea!!
