Outlook 2003 - viewing BCC Recipients in a sent mail

Dear All

I have a user using Outlook 2003. As she works in our marketing Department she has a requirement to send marketing emails to around 80 users. As she does not want the reciepients to see the other addresses she uses the BCC Field.

Once the email has been sent and the mail goes into her sent items, upon opening it she can see the mail, but the BCC recipient field does not display the addresses the mail was sent to.

Is there some kind of limit to the amount of addresses Outlook 2003 will display in this manner?

Any help would be much apprecaited.

Many Thanks in advance

I saw the above thread but it wasnt relevent. The BCC Field is there on the email but it just doesnt show any addresses, so it isnt a view thing.

I've done loads of searches, but turned up nothing.

There can be a limitation as you suggest. Please read the following excerpt :

Many e-mail service providers set limits for the number of names that can be in the To, Cc, and Bcc fields in a message. For example, your e-mail service provider may limit each message to a maximum of 100 e-mail addresses. If these addresses can be distributed among the To, Cc, and Bcc fields, remember that the names in the Bcc field will count toward your total limit. Ask your e-mail service provider about the policies for your account.

I've doubled checked and I dont think it is a limitation, as other users in the company have been able to do this effectivly. This make me believe it could be specific to her email profile.

try to create for her a new profile on a diffrent PC for testing.

also a new profile on the same PC may also fix the issue.

Regarding the question you have asked, I think you can see the names that you had entered in the BCC field. Just go to the sent items. Double - Click on the mail which you want to see the list of mailing names for. A new window will open. In this new  window, you can see all the names you had entered in the BCC field. Hope this helps.

Regards
