Technically spoken, not "move to bcc", but: remove from to (or cc)! The 
bcc is not a header field, it does not exist. It's a notice to the client 
to send to all these addresses, but don't put them in any header 
destination field.

I "love" my relatives or friends put me in the cc, send me a joke or 
picture I do not want, anyway, and spread my private email address to lots 
of unknown people and thereby to the spammers. It's really hard to educate 

So, I think it makes sense to sanitize such mails. But this is not 
functionality built-in in MS.
