Always Show BCC

As we mention often, if you are sending email to several people, be considerate and use the Blind Carbon Copy feature. This keeps the various recipients secret and secure.

When you go to create an email in Outlook Express , click on “View”, then check “All Headers”.


You should now see “BCC” under “To” and “CC”.

IF you are composing a new message in Netscape Mail 7 , just click the arrow in the “To:” box and a drop-down menu will appear. Choose “Bcc:” to make the address next to it a blind copy.


Do this for every address you want kept secret.

As I mention whenever we run a BCC tip, AOL users can put (parenthesis) around addresses in the “Copy to” section of the email.
