No. Top marks for understanding the problem though, most people miss the

I just use the setting for testing rulesets.

It includes the Bcc as that is just a list of extra recipients who 
happen not to appear in the headers. Otherwise they are perfectly normal 
recipients, just like the To and Cc lists are.
