Outlook rule to forward BCC emails

Hi,

I'm trying to figure out how to set up an Outlook rule that forwards any emails that arrive with blanks in the To: and CC: field. Basically, anything incomming sent with BCC. There is a rule in Outlook for forwarding 'where my name is not in the to: box. I need a rule that is, forward message 'where my name is not i the to: box or the CC: box). I can't find this rule. If anyone has any ideas, i'd be very grateful.

Unfortunately and as far as I know this cannot be done. You can't use the BCC-field for rules.

Then it should be possible.  Try this.

1.  Create a new rule.
2.  Leave the rule condition blank.  That will set the rule to fire for all messages.
3.  Set the rule's action.
4.  Set the rule exception to "except if my name is in the To or Cc box".  

The result should be a rule that fires for all messages except those where your name is in the To or Cc box.  In other words, messages you were BCCd on.

BlueDevilFan - Genius! Pretty simple actually, not sure why I didn't think of it.

@VantaBods

Just a note:
This rule will apply to every(!) message that is sent to a distribution group you're a member of.
