    How to Add the Bcc Recipient to the Windows Mail Compose Message Window


    information   Information
    Bcc stands for Blind Carbon Copy. Like Cc recipients, Bcc gets a copy of the message. Unlike the Cc recipients, the addresses of the Bcc recipients do not show up in the mail. The email addresses stay anonymous with only a name displayed. Just add the address into the Bcc: field like you would the To: field to send the email to. This is turned off by default.
    Tip   Tip
    If you only put your email address in the To: field and the rest in the Bcc: field, then your address will be the only one the recipients (Contacts) will see.



    Here's How:
    1. Open Windows Mail.

    2. Click on one of these toolbar buttons in Windows Mail to open a message compose window. (See screenshot below)

    3. Click on the Click to Play button in the video below.

    How do you print a copy of a group in Windows Mail Contacts? I would like to have a hard copy to proof.

    Thanks, vfessel

    Hi Vfessel,

    Welcome to Vista Forums.

    You should be able to right click on the Contact Group in "C:\Users\(your username)\Contacts" and click Print to do it.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    if I put my address in the TO: section, won't I get the message sent back to myself?

    Can you send a message just using the BCC: section?

    Hello Ragged Edge,

    Yes, you will get a message sent to you. However, any address you place in the TO: field will be seen by everyone you send the message to. It's a workaround to prevent any address other than your own from being seen by the other addresses the message is being sent to.

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    Thanks for the prompt reply.

    I was afraid that was the answer I would get, I guess I can live with it.

    Thanks,

    Your welcome Ragged Edged. I suppose that you can look at it as a comfirmation that the message was sent.
