    Er, you do know there's little correlation between the to and cc headers
with what goes on at SMTP time?  Those headers exist for the client, not the
server.  To the server they are completely in the data block and aren't
anything to complain about.

    As for the client side I don't recall if 2822 states there can only be one
 of those headers.  After a quick check with the all knowing oracle, Google,
looks like to and cc can have a minimum of 0 and a max of 1.  But that's for
the clients to complain about.
