This can't really be done.. The only way I have seen close is to create a custom form and remove the BCC field.  Then you will have to make this the default message for the whole organization.  There is a way around this though.  if a user clicks on the address book they still have access too the BCC button.  This is by design.  In the past I have tried GPO, Office adm templates, Office 2010 gpo etc..  Per Microsoft, there really is no way to completely remove this function...

BCC cannot be disabled via Group Policy or on the Exchange Server. You can hide BCC in OWA and even if you push out hiding of the BCC in Outlook's new message window they will always be able to access it from the address book. BCC is an integral part of email, just as CC, forwarding and reply.

Not really sure what the point is - you have a full record of messages sent on the Exchange server as needed.

I will do the OWA thing, but as you mention it will not disappear completely, that's my reason for a "B".
