The CC and BCC Reciever addresses are stored in the email header.

When you get a mail with the class you get an array.

$array = array( "<HEADER>",
"a header line",
"CC: Hans Mustermann <>"
"and soon",
"</HEADER>" );

while( ($buf = next($array)) != "</HEADER>" )
if( preg_match("/^(CC|BCC)/i",$buf) )
// Now you have the line

Good Luck
