Description about Bcc feature for Microsoft Outlook
Microsoft Outlook is an e-mail client developed by Microsoft Corporation. It can be used to manage our e-mails efficiently. We can also add e-mails to Microsoft Outlook from different e-mail programs such as Gmail, Yahoo Mail etc. Microsoft Outlook provides several features and tools to manage our e-mail transactions. It has three address fields ‘To’, 'Cc' and ‘Bcc’. ‘To’ fields deals with the address of all recipients to which the e-mail is sent. ‘Cc’ fields deals with the address of all recipients to which a copy of the e-mail is to be sent. The address placed in the 'Bcc' field will be invisible to the other recipients. This feature provides both security and privacy to our e-mail messages.

What is Bcc
Bcc or Blind Carbon Copy allows the user to send an e-mail message to a number of people and hide the address of the recipients added in the Bcc list. When you send e-mails to multiple addresses, then every user can view the other recipients. You can easily avoid such situation using the Bcc feature in Microsoft Outlook. It will help you keep your other contacts details safe.
Bcc field hides the contact name and e-mail addresses listed in that field. Bcc allows the user to keep the personal details such as contact details of the people confidential. Therefore there is no need to recreate separate e-mails for each contact. E-mail messages sent without Bcc field may be harvested by virus infected computers or spammers. Privacy and Etiquette are the other features offered by Bcc in Microsoft Outlook.
In order to add Bcc field, select ‘New Mail Messages’ in Microsoft Outlook. If you are using Microsoft Word as your e-mail editor, then select dropdown arrow to the right of the ‘Option’ button on the toolbar. Then click on ‘Bcc’. If you are not using word as the default editor, then click on the ‘View’ menu and select ‘Bcc’ field. Now you can type the recipient’s name in the Bcc field which can not be seen by the persons in the To and Cc fields.
