We have Exchange 2010 server having CAS role with SP2.We want all users should get BCC filed by default when they clcik new message.Currently users need to click Option button and need to check mark on "Show BCC"  to get BCC tab in new message. Is there way so users will get BCC button by default when they click new message instead go by option tab.

Would you please provide us an update as its urgent.
Yes - for each user do the following:

Go to Options –> Settings –> Mail –> Message format
Check the "always show BCC" box

This worked for us. Alter this file at your own risk. You can apply
this fix without restarting any services and it works on the fly.

Now BCC is on by default and can be turned off in options.

You may try it for Exchange 2010
This workaround is not needed in 2010 as the "always show BCC" option (that wasn't there in 07) is now included.  The only downside is that you need to do this (once) per user

But it still has to be enabled for each user individually which I think would be tedious for big enterprises
