How to Add Bcc Recipients in Outlook

By

Make sure

Make sure "Show Bcc" is clicked

Using the Bcc field you can send a copy of a message with the recipient's email address hidden from all other recipients. The Bcc field works just like the To and Cc fields in Outlook.

But Where is the Bcc Field?

But what's a poor Outlook user to do if she sees no Bcc field?

She makes it visible, and uses the appropriate method whether she uses Outlook 2007, or a previous version with Word or without.
