Don't expose valuable business and personal e-mail addresses when sending messages to multiple recipients. Use the blind carbon copy, or BCC, which is simply proper netiquette.

Click on new message in any e-mail program. The commands for showing or hiding the BCC field are available inside a new message window.

Step 2: Find BCC feature in Outlook Express
Click View and then All Headers in Outlook Express if the BCC doesn’t appear in the header of your e-mail. It will be between the CC and Subject lines.

Step 3: Find BCC in Outlook
Click View, and then click BCC Field to use this feature in Outlook.

Step 4: Find in Gmail
In Gmail, click Compose Message, then Add BCC.

Step 5: Use in AOL and Yahoo
Use the BCC feature in AOL by typing the addresses in parentheses in the Copy To box, separating each with a comma. In Yahoo, click the Add BCC button.

Step 6: Use in Mac Mail
Click on the Customize icon to the left of the Subject line in Mac Mail and check the line that says BCC address field.

Did You Know?
