I have a catch all email account that sends all incoming mail elsewhere for processing

If these emails were received because the recipient was blind copied (bcc), it is at the moment impossible to tell who the email was sent to.

Understandably there is no bcc header, but some MTAs can be configured to record the original envelope recipient address in a special header. Is this something Webfaction or I could set-up?

That's not something you can set up yourself, since you don't have access to the MTA configuration.

That's also not something we can set up for you, since doing so would compromise the privacy that is implied by BCC and that is expected by our customers.

If you have particular addresses for which you expect to receive mail as a BCC recipient, then I recommend that you create separate addresses for those, and target them at a mail2script script that injects an identifying header into them before handing them off to your remote system.
