Sometimes, it's good to copy people on an email you send.

Sometimes, it's good to copy people but hide their addresses from the message — when you send to a group whose members do not know each other (and each other's email addresses), for example, or when you mail a group that does know each other and always uses Reply to All instead of Reply to send a message that's only for you.

In any event and for any purpose, adding hidden Bcc: recipients is easy in Windows Live Mail.

Add Bcc Recipients in Windows Live Mail

To add Bcc: recipients to an email you are composing in Windows Live Mail:

  • Start with a new email in Windows Live Mail.
  • Click Show Cc & Bcc if you see it next to the Subject: field.
  • Use the Bcc: field like you would use the To: field.
