It's kind of funny that a software application would use abbreviations that refer to pre-software days. Remember carbon copies? Cc means carbon copy and Bcc means blind carbon copy. For emailing, you use Cc when you want to copy others publicly, and Bcc when you want to do it privately. Any recipients on the Bcc line of an email are not visible to others on the email. These five tips get beginners started and provide info for those who already know how to use Bcc.
Probably one of the biggest hurtles that customers face is figuring out how to add or remove Bcc to or from an email.
Bcc appears in the Send area of your email, below Cc. (Cc appears in the Send area by default.)
While others can't see who's on the Bcc line of the email you send, you might want to remind yourself who you included.
All recipients appear in the header section of your message.
Most people know when to use the Cc line--you put people there who you need to keep in the loop even though they're not the primary people you're sending to. When you want to keep recipients hidden from people on the To: line, then you add them to the Bcc line. Tip #4 and #5 give you two reasons you might want to do that.
If your name is on the Bcc list, you won't receive any emails if someone on the To or Cc line replies to the original email. This is especially handy when there are lots of people on the To or Cc line who Reply All during a long email conversation. Your inbox would be inundated with emails when all you needed to care about was the first one.
Take note! If you're on the Bcc line of an email and you reply to the email, your secret's out-everyone on the To and Cc lines knows you were Bcc'd. Why does this matter? Let's say you send an email to a colleague gently reminding him or her about a deliverable that's long overdue. You want to let your manager in on this, so you include her on the Bcc line. But if she replies to the email-uh-oh! Your colleague knows you've "informed" your manager. Might make for some awkwardness in the workplace for a while!

One use for the BCC line is to circulate some particulary good jokes to friends. I try to avoid circulating jokes too often but there are some jokes that just have to be shared.
At least this way, the joke doesn't end up creating a big chain of emails because everyone starts repying-all with LOLs etc.
Tips for Making Outlook Work for Your Business
There is an error in this article. If I am a BCC recipient and I hit reply, the other recipients will NOT learn about me. Only if I hit Reply-to-all will they learn about me. That should be corrected for the people that do not know.
I don't see the error to be honest. The article doesn't claim that all other BCC recipients will see your response, only that the accounts which end up in your To and CC fields will know. Maybe I'm reading things differently (I'm not a native English speaker) but in my opinion the article doesn't imply that everyone who got a BCC message as well will be included in your reply.
Clever maneouvre! Thanks
Daniel Blois is right about Tip #5. What Daniel stipulates is that if you hit "To Sender Only", your identity is revealed to the Sender only and to no one else on the "To" nor "Cc" list. Conversely, if you hit "Reply to All" then and then only is your identity revealed to everyone.
As someone who has seen and made far too many cringe-worthy BCC blunders, I'd like to suggest a new Outlook feature. I want Outlook to confront me with a gigantic "Warning" when I hit Reply-To-All on a message where I was blind-copied and others were named on its TO or CC list. This could save a lot of grief, and maybe a job or relationship.
Is anyone else having issues with the capcha (security test with odd letters and numerals)?? I regularly have to fill out three (after checking and rechecking each), and then it just give up on me, I guess. Pain in the rear.
Well, my previous comment posted, it says I'm "signed in" OK, but it posts as "Anonymous", and where did that picture come from?? That ain't me!! Or anyone I know.
Hey, Outlook!! What is going on??
