  • Depends what the email is about I suppose

  • Well I often send bcc when I mass email people so that I do not share my friends email addresses with others. Not sure why someone you don't know would be sending you an email, but it may have been as a bcc because they did the same thing as I do. When sent as a bcc the recipient cannot see the email adresses of all the others included thus affording them some privacy.
