Outlook 2013 Number of Recipients

Is there a way to see how many recipients are added in BCC field..?  2010 version would show you above To field .. ## of recipients

2013 doesn't have this .. just trying to see if there is an easy way to get a count without manually counting the e-mail addresses (if there is more than 30 ..)

Thanks - - -

You can use the following VBA macro for this:
Sub CountBCC()
    Set objInspector = ActiveInspector
    If Not objInspector Is Nothing Then
        Count = 0
        For Each objRecip In objInspector.CurrentItem.Recipients
            If objRecip.Type = olBCC Then
                Count = Count + 1
            End If
        MsgBox "The number of BCC recipients: " & Count
    End If
End Sub

Open in new window

Just add this macro and place the button that runs the macro on your Outlook message's ribbon. Now you can show BCC count with one click

I did not find anything similar to this in my Outlook. Or else, I have look over both the versions of Outlook (2010 & 2013), but did not get any cue about which you are talking.

Could you please be more specific?

In Outlook, press ALT+F11, Enable Macros if asked, open Project1->Microsoft Outlook Objects->ThisOutlookSession on the left pane and paste the macro to the code window. Press CTRL+S to save the  changes. After that you can find this macro when customizing the ribbon (select Macros in "Choose commands from" list).
