Bcc is missing from Outlook after I installed Windows 7

I used Bcc (blind carbon copy) a lot when I used to send E-Mails. At least I did so with Outlook 2007 when I ran it under XP. I have now moved to Windows 7 and my Outlook 2007 no longer shows the Bcc option for sending mail anonymously.

Is there any way I can get it back again without going back to XP?

Hi JR,

When you have a new message open, go to the Options tab of the ribbon, and in the Fields section click Show BCC.

depending on your version of outlook:

open a new email, click the little "down arrow" to the right of the OPTIONS button, then click BCC

alternatively you can do this in a command prompt (start > run > cmd):

copy the following code, then right-click the black window inside the command prompt, select 'paste'.  i put 4 versions of outlook in here because i don't know which you have:

reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Preferences /v ShowBCC /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Preferences /v ShowBCC /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\12.0\Outlook\Preferences /v ShowBCC /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f
reg add HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\13.0\Outlook\Preferences /v ShowBCC /t REG_DWORD /d 1 /f

Open in new window

depending on how you copy/paste the code above, you might have to press enter again on the keyboard after you paste them

(close and open outlook after you paste the stuff above)

Thanks so much. Now that I know where the choice is, the solution is easy. I am still having trouble getting used to the MS ribbon that hides things. The help file was no use either in finding the solution.

In short, EE enhances MS products!

Thanks again to both of you
