Why?  That is obtained from the TIdMessage that is already being passed to
those messages.

Why?  What EXACTLY are you trying to accomplish?  Please provide an example.
Have you looked at the CcList and BccList properties of TIdMessage yet?

What does that have to do with anything?  What the server decides to do
behind the scenes is not reflected in the SMTP commands that TIdSMTP is
required to send to the server.
