davtoche,

I use the MAPIMessages control.
Once I have entered the recipients I want to send the message to, I then use RecipType = 3

Example:

MAPISession1.LogonUI = False
MAPISession1.UserName = "MICROSOFT OUTLOOK"
MAPISession1.SignOn
MAPIMessages.SessionID = MAPISession1.SessionID
MAPIMessages.Compose
MAPIMessages.RecipDisplayName = "Test User"
MAPIMessages.RecipAddress = "TestUser@somewhere.com"
MAPIMessages.ResolveName
MAPIMessages.RecipType = 3      '<***** This is Bcc *******
MAPIMessages.MsgSubject = "test!"
'Create the message
MAPIMessages.MsgNoteText = strEmailMessage
MAPIMessages.Send False
MAPISession1.SignOff

The 3 is "Bcc"
2 is "cc"
1 is "To"

davtoche,

The way that I do it is to loop through a recordset or array or something like that.

For example:
I'll use a textbox control array.  I have 5 people I want to sent email to, so I create 5 textboxes called "Text" and add the names of the recepients into each textbox.  Then I loop through the textboxes then send the email.
Use of the MAPIMessages.RecipIndex allows this.
Text(1) = "TestUser@somewhere.com"
Text(2) = "TestUser2@somewhere.com"
and so on...

code looks like this:

---------------------------------------------------------
dim i as integer
dim strEmailMessage as string

MAPISession1.LogonUI = False
MAPISession1.UserName = "MICROSOFT OUTLOOK"
MAPISession1.SignOn
MAPIMessages.SessionID = MAPISession1.SessionID
MAPIMessages.Compose
For i = 0 To Text.Count - 1
    MAPIMessages.RecipIndex = MAPIMessages.RecipCount
    MAPIMessages.RecipDisplayName = Text(i)
    MAPIMessages.RecipAddress = Text(i)
    MAPIMessages.ResolveName
    MAPIMessages.RecipType = mapBccList
Next i
MAPIMessages.MsgNoteText = strEmailMessage
MAPIMessages.Send False
MAPISession1.SignOff

---------------------------------------------------------

I told you that the "3" was for Bcc and that is correct but you can also use the mapBccList to make it easier to understand.
mapToList = Primary recepient
mapCcList = Carbon copy recepients
mapBccList = Blind Carbon copy recepients
