Bcc Field

The Bcc field (Blind carbon copy) is one of the most underutilized features in email programs.

Use the Bcc field when those that you are addressing the email to do not know each other and do not need to know each other's names and addresses. This practice can help cut down on unwanted email.

When you start a new email, if you don't see a Bcc address line:

  1. Display the Options ribbon and click on the Show Bcc button.


  2. Address the email as usual, using the Bcc field or combination of Bcc field, To field, and Cc field.
  3. The Bcc field will now be available to you for future emails, unless you repeat step 1, above, to hide it.
