BCC outlook 2013

With earlier versions of outlook you could select and open a sent email in which you had sent  blind copies  to several recipients.

For some reason I cannot see who the BCC recipients are i had sent the email to....even in the header.

Anyone have anything on this? ... is this perhaps a outlook 2013 bug?

Thanks!!!!

I sent an ordinary email from Outlook 2010 in early 2013 to a group of people via BCC. Now in Outlook 2013, I can open the email and see the BCC line and the people I sent the BCC to.

In a message you are sending, go to Options and turn BCC ON. See if that helps. Once you have turned the option ON, I think it stays on.

Thanks!  Yes...  the option was on when sending to the BCC recipients. However when viewing the sent email the BCC'd recipients do not show up so yoy cannot see who you sent the blind copied email to.
I just did the following with Outlook 2013.

1. Opened a new Email.
2. Ensured BCC was ON and enabled.
3. Sent an email to myself and a BCC to another person.
4. The other person got the email (and so did I).
5. When I open the email (NOT preview it), I can see the BCC.  I cannot see the BCC in Preview.

So it works and is not an Outlook 2013. Check your settings carefully and open the sent email.

I unfortunately cannot repeat your success....  while making sure BCC is enabled.  I must be missing something else?
Try repairing Office.

Go to Control Panel, Programs and Features, find Microsoft Office, click on it, Change, and then Repair. It should ask you if you wish a full repair and do a full repair.

See if repair fixes it.

Also try constructing a new mail only from To, BCC and the contacts folder. That is from scratch. Do not use an old BCC list.

Open the message that was sent. By default, sent messages are saved in the Sent Items folder. All recipients appear in the header section of the message.
@MDMOJAHID - That is just the same as we posted earlier and ssumerlin was not able to see the headers.
