How To Use Bcc (Blind Carbon Copy) in Outlook 2010

If you want to send an email to a contact or several contacts, you might want to keep some of the recipient email addresses private using the Bcc (Blind Carbon Copy) Field. Here’s how to do it in Outlook 2010.

It’s not enabled by default, but adding it as a field for all future emails is a simple process.

Launch Outlook and under the Home tab click on the New E-mail button.

1bcc

When the new mail window opens click on the Options tab and in the Show Fields column select Bcc.

2bcc

The Bcc field will appear and you can then put the contacts in there who you want to receive the mail secretly or don’t want to show a certain email address.

3bcc

Now anytime you compose a message, the Bcc field is included. For more on the Bcc field check out the blog post from Mysticgeek – Keep Your Email Contacts Private.
