BCC on emails

Specs: Windows 7
When I send multiple emails all my contact address's are shown to whom ever I send to. I was told BCC was under the word options top right hand side of message. Not on mine it isn't. Any idea's were my BCC is hiding?

Regards
New Comer

It depends on what you are using to send Emails. BCC usually comes after CC, recipient and sender.

Just to explain. CC stands for Carbon Copy. It is a throwback to when letters were typed on a mechanical typewriter. If you wanted to send a letter to multiple recipients you had to use carbon paper to avoid typing the letter numerous time.

A list of the recipients was usually typed at bottom of the letter under the heading CC.

BCC stands for Blind Carbon Copy. The same thing only this time there were no lists of recipients. Everyone would think they were the only recipients, except those that got a carbon copy but they would not know who else had received the letter. CC and BCC were instructions to the typist as the sender of the letter hardly ever typed the letter themselves.

These days, Email does all this for you automatically. No carbon paper required.

MS and other email clients should make BCC the default, not something you have to fiddle around finding. It's bad practice sending everyones email address around, as you've obviously realised.

Please come back and let us know the outcome.
