The BCC field is an important part of the email environment. It allows you to copy additional people on the messages you send, but it removes them from any future Reply Alls, and the other recipients of the email message won’t be able to see that the BCC’d individual has received a copy of the message.
You can BCC someone in Outlook 2013, although the field to do so is not visible by default. Our guide below will teach you how to show the BCC field in Outlook 2013 so that you can add email addresses to that field and start blind copying contacts on your email messages.
How to Enable the BCC Field for Sending Emails in Outlook 2013
The steps in this article are going to change a setting in Outlook 2013 so that the BCC field is included as an option at the top of the Message window. This setting can be toggled on or off at any time by following these same steps.
Step 1: Open Outlook 2013.
Step 2: Click the New Email button at the top-left corner of the window.
Step 3: Click the Options tab at the top of the message window.
Step 4: Click the Bcc button in the Show Fields section of the ribbon. The BCC field should be visible immediately after clicking that button, as it is in the image below.
This setting will persist after you send your email. That means that the BCC field will be displayed as an option for the next email you send, and every email after that unless you elect to return to that screen in Step 4 and click the Bcc button again to make it disappear.
