According to the Outlook help, the BCC property contains the display names only. The recipients collection should be used modify the BCC recipients.

Here is an example:

I hope that help you.

Public Sub TestBCC()

    Dim item As MailItem, rcp As Recipient

    Set item = Application.CreateItem(olMailItem)

    Set rcp = item.Recipients.Add("John Grande<>")

    rcp.Type = olBCC


End Sub

Open in new window

Hi Chuck,

Thank you for your response.  I think it is working now.  I using the same address for both the CC and BCC.  I changed that and it is working.  Thank you.
