GPO to force BCC / From in Outlook 2013

I believe there should be a way to force Outlook 2013 to always show the BCC and FROM fields via GPO.

I have load the administrative templates and I see a ton of options but can't seem to locate that specific one...

Anyone ?

Check - User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Office Outlook 2007\Disable Items in User Interface\Predefined.

Click Disable command bar buttons and menu items, and choose Enabled in the next window. Then, you can see the following item from the list, please select them and save the settings:

Mail item: View |Bcc field
Mail item: View |From field

Thanks for your suggestion.

I don't see those options:

OK so looks like that option is not there in 2013 as you found.  I don't see any way to enable this item in the user interface using the gpo settings.  

You could deply it as a registry key in group policy.

Add the key as a REG_DWORD:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Preferences
ShowBcc is a REG_DWORD and you want it set to 1 not 0.
