I can’t find the BCC button under Options. What do I do?
Your copy of Outlook may have been customized. You can bring the BCC option back by selecting the “Customize Quick Access” arrow at the upper-left portion of the window, then selecting “More commands…”. From there select “Quick Access Toolbar” to modify the options available. If you want to take the easy way, just select the “Reset” button. to modify the options available.
How can I tell who was sent a BCC on an email message?
A blind carbon copy is intended to be “blind”. You cannot see a record of who was sent a BCC within Outlook if you are a recipient. However, if you sent the message, you can open it from your Sent Items folder and see who was sent a BCC message.
