Email: Where is the “BCC” Button?

Help!  I don’t see the “bcc” button on my email, where is it?

Whether or not the “bcc” shows up as an option is based on a toggle (it’s either turned on or off).  If you’re not seeing it as an option when writing an email, it’s turned off.  To turn it on, try this~

Open Outlook and click on “New Email” (just like you always do when you’re starting a new email to send out)

On that blank mail, click on the “OPTIONS” tab along the top.

Then click on the “Bcc” button.  It will remain highlighted (so you know it’s now “on”).

Please let me know if you have any questions at all.  Thanks!
