      According to the HISTORY file:

      20070405

      Feature: BCC access/policy action, to demonstrate that this
      is not a good feature. The action's behavior is non-intuitive
      and requires too much documentation to explain. It's
      therefore snapshot only. File: smtpd/smtpd_check.c.

      Among the limitations are: the BCC access/policy action can't be
      used in the before-smtpd_proxy_filter smtpd process, and it can't
      be used with smtpd_delay_reject=no before the MAIL FROM command
      (these limitations also apply to FILTER, HOLD, DISCARD, REDIRECT).

      These limitations don't exist with recipient/sender_bcc_maps;
      every match will add a BCC recipient. The differences between
      _bcc_maps and BCC in access maps make the feature non-intuitive.

      And intuitive it has to be, because many people assume that Postfix
      documentation is as useless as other documentation.
