What if you want to avoid a long litany of email address in that field (say, when distributing your latest do-it-yourself adventures), or need to copy somebody without their address visible to other recipients?
Windows Live Hotmail does not expose the Bcc: field right away, but adding recipients to it is still easy.
Add a Bcc: Recipient to a Message in Windows Live Hotmail
To add recipients to the Bcc: field when composing a message in Windows Live Hotmail:
- Click Show Cc & Bcc (right above the To: line and to the right).
- Type the desired recipient's email address in the Bcc: field or use the Bcc: button to select people from your contacts.
- If you add more than one recipient, separate them with semicolons (like: "email@example.com; firstname.lastname@example.org").
Using Bcc:, you can also send an email to "undisclosed recipients" from Windows Live Hotmail.
