Summary :

When you need to send an email to multiple recipients, you can add Bcc to the email so that one recipient can’t view others’ email addresses. This post from the MiniTool Partition Wizard introduces how to add Bcc to Outlook on different devices.

When to Add Bcc to Outlook

Microsoft Outlook is an email service designed as a part of the Microsoft Office suite. It also provides other features like calendaring, task managing, contact managing, etc. This service is available on many operating systems, including Microsoft Windows, macOS, Android (Android 7 and later), and iOS (iOS 14 and later).

Outlook allows you to add Bcc (blind carbon copy) when you send an email to multiple recipients at once. If you add Bcc to Outlook when you send an email, any recipients won’t know the full recipient list, so they cannot copy others’ addresses.

It is popular for the following advantages:

  • Keeping the recipient list private and protecting the recipients’ privacy.
  • Prevent recipients from replying to all.
  • Reducing spam.
