identify / decrypt
Explanation:
just a thought...

A Bcc: It should not be possible to identify the recipients' [pl sing?](email adresses) through (a decryption procedure)

There is probably a more elegant way of putting it...

P.S.
*resolve* might also be an option, but it depends on what exactly *Empfängerauflösung* means here
see link and use Ctrl F for main entry *resolve*

agree  Ken Cox: Effectively what it means, but in the context 'resolve' is probably best (std term). A URL can be resolved to a TCP/IP address, or an ID can be resolved to a user name.. A Bcc: recipient is a 'hidden' recipient (unknown to the main or cc: recipient(s)).

agree  Seger Bonebakker (X): "Auflösung" might very well be a clumsy translation of "Resolve" in the first place.
