BCC stands for "Blind Carbon Copy".  Email addresses listed in the BCC field of an email will receive the email, but the BCC list is not transmitted with the email.  This is so no one who receives the email can see who was BCC'ed -- that's what is meant by "blind".  So, incoming email does not have a BCC field -- only outgoing email can have a BCC field.  Therefore, there is NO WAY to obtain BCC information from a received email.  You will have to talk to whoever created the requirement and explain that it is not possible.

Not sure if this is what you're asking for, but the Messaging.SingleEmailMessage class has a method:
 
public void setBccAddresses( String[] bccAddresses )

Is this what you're looking for?

If you're trying to get BCC address from an email that you have received, I don't think that's possible.  The whole idea of the BCC address is that the receiver can't see it.

Sample code is here .. try to set by using  setBccAddresses(bccAddresses) on SingleEmailMessage 

mail.setBccAddresses(lead.bccemail__c) ;


https://developer.salesforce.com/docs/atlas.en-us.apexcode.meta/apexcode/apex_classes_email_outbound_single.htm
 
Messaging.reserveSingleEmailCapacity(2);

  Messaging.SingleEmailMessage mail = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage();

  String[] toAddresses = new String[] {Lead.email}; 

  String[] ccAddresses = new String[] {Lead.email};

  // Assign the addresses for the To and CC lists to the mail object.

  mail.setToAddresses(toAddresses);

  mail.setCcAddresses(ccAddresses);

  mail.setBccAddresses(lead.bccemail__c) ;
  
  // Specify the address used when the recipients reply to the email. 

  mail.setReplyTo('sfdcsrini@gmail.com');

  // Specify the name used as the display name.

  mail.setSenderDisplayName('Salesforce Support');

  // Specify the subject line for your email address.

  mail.setSubject('New Lead Created : ' + Lead.Id);

  // Set to True if you want to BCC yourself on the email.

  mail.setBccSender(false);

  // Optionally append the salesforce.com email signature to the email.

  // The email address of the user executing the Apex Code will be used.

  mail.setUseSignature(true);

  // Specify the text content of the email.

  mail.setPlainTextBody('Your Lead: ' + Lead.Id +' has been created.');

  mail.setHtmlBody('Your Lead: ' + Lead.Id +' has been created.'+

       'To view your Contact click here.');

  // Send the email you have created.

  Messaging.sendEmail(new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage[] { mail });

 }

}

Hi Raj,

Now the error is not showing.Lead is not getting created.In debug log Bccaddess is showing null value.
System.EmailException: SendEmail failed. First exception on row 0; first error: REQUIRED_FIELD_MISSING, Email body is required.: []
Thanks

Please add the below send email logic as shown below .. you need to set this values
 
// First, reserve email capacity for the current Apex transaction to ensure
// that we won't exceed our daily email limits when sending email after
// the current transaction is committed.
Messaging.reserveSingleEmailCapacity(2);

// Processes and actions involved in the Apex transaction occur next,
// which conclude with sending a single email.

// Now create a new single email message object
// that will send out a single email to the addresses in the To, CC & BCC list.
Messaging.SingleEmailMessage mail = new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage();

// Strings to hold the email addresses to which you are sending the email.
String[] toAddresses = new String[] {'user@acme.com'}; 
String[] ccAddresses = new String[] {'smith@gmail.com'};
  

// Assign the addresses for the To and CC lists to the mail object.
mail.setToAddresses(toAddresses);
mail.setCcAddresses(ccAddresses);

// Specify the address used when the recipients reply to the email. 
mail.setReplyTo('support@acme.com');

// Specify the name used as the display name.
mail.setSenderDisplayName('Salesforce Support');

// Specify the subject line for your email address.
mail.setSubject('New Case Created : ' + case.Id);

// Set to True if you want to BCC yourself on the email.
mail.setBccSender(false);

// Optionally append the salesforce.com email signature to the email.
// The email address of the user executing the Apex Code will be used.
mail.setUseSignature(false);

// Specify the text content of the email.
mail.setPlainTextBody('Your Case: ' + case.Id +' has been created.');

mail.setHtmlBody('Your case:<b> ' + case.Id +' </b>has been created.<p>'+
     'To view your case <a href=https://***yourInstance***.salesforce.com/'+case.Id+'>click here.</a>');

// Send the email you have created.
Messaging.sendEmail(new Messaging.SingleEmailMessage[] { mail });

Hi,

In lead page there are few fields(Description,email id,Bcc ,Cc).These fields should populate values from mail when i create a lead using emailtolead.eg: subject in email should populate in description in lead page.Currently im getting all the values except bcc.I cannot assign the string to bcc .
