View Bcc recipients of an email message

If you add a recipient's name to the blind carbon copy Bcc box in an email message, a copy of the message is sent to the recipient. The recipient's name isn’t visible to the other recipients of the message (names entered in the To or Cc boxes).

To, Cc, and Bcc boxes

Tip    If the Bcc box doesn’t appear, for instructions on how to display it, see Prevent recipient names from showing by using Bcc.

View all Bcc recipients of a message I received

The only person who can see the names of Bcc recipients of a message is the sender.

If you are the message sender, do the following:

  • Open the message that was sent. By default, sent messages are saved in the Sent Items folder. All recipients appear in the header section of the message.

Note    Bcc recipient names don’t appear when you preview messages in the Reading Pane. Only recipients on the To and Cc lines appear.
