Bcc or Blind Carbon Copy is a facility in Outlook that helps you send mails to someone without revealing their email address anywhere in the message. Using this feature, you can hide the recipient’s email address from all the other recipients. This works just like the “To” and “Cc” fields in Outlook.
At times, you may stumble upon some error with the Bcc option on your Outlook. You might notice that the Bcc field is missing on your Outlook screen while you are trying to send a message. Normally, such issues occur due to changes made on your Outlook setting for this feature. If you come across such a situation, it doesn’t mean that your Outlook is not working properly. Of course, it may look complex at first sight but nothing is simpler!
As I mentioned earlier, such issues arise due to an incorrect Outlook setting. So all you need to do in such situations is to change the Outlook setting on your Outlook to enable the Bcc field. This is really a simple process and you need not take the trouble of calling in a technician. In fact, you can try going through the following guidelines for resetting your Outlook setting for Bcc yourself and thus get this issue cleared instantly.
Adding a Bcc on your Outlook is a very simple process. For changing the Outlook setting for this, the following guidelines will be of help.
- First of all, you can start off this help procedure to change your Outlook setting, by opening your Outlook.
- Then, as to change your Outlook setting for the Bcc option, select the “Options” ribbon.
- Click on the “Show Bcc” tab.
- Click “OK”.
Now your Outlook setting for the Bcc option has been changed back to the proper configuration. You will see that the Bcc field has appeared back at its place; and now you can start using it just like the “To” and “Cc” fields on your Outlook.
