Frequently asked questions

What is Auto Bcc for Outlook?

Auto BCC is an easy to understand and convenient to work with plug-in for Outlook. You just create a CC or BCC rule and the add-in does the whole job itself. A well-thought-out system of conditions and exceptions allows you to have a blind copy or CC address inserted automatically for:

  • All outgoing emails from all your e-mail accounts.
  • E-mails sent from one of your Microsoft Outlook profiles or accounts.
  • Messages sent to the specified addresses only.
  • Outgoing messages with particular words or phrases in the subject line or in the attachment name.

How to create a new Auto BCC rule in Outlook?

There are 5 easy steps:

  1. Click on the add-in's icon to open it on the Ablebits.com tab.
  2. Click the New rule button.
  3. Select one of the options:
    • Apply the rule for all outgoing e-mail messages in all profiles.

Can I use flexible conditions to create my Outlook Auto BCC rule?

Sure. You can take advantage of the following Conditions for BCC/CC that let your rules get even more flexibility:

  • If Account is automatically adds BCC recipient for those Outlook messages that are sent from the selected e-mail account.
  • If the subject line contains is the rule for emails with the specified keywords in the subject.
  • If attachment name contains sends CC or BCC based on key words in the attachment name.
  • With If To: contains use the recipient's email address or its part as a condition for sending BCC copy automatically.
  • If CC: contains adds a blind copy if the email address or its part in the CC field coincides with the one you enter as a condition.

Is it possible to use several key phrases for each condition?

Yes! You can add BCC based not only on the Outlook Account, but also on key words in the subject. Thus, you can add phrases like "special offer", "special price", "discounts" to the "if Subject contains" condition, and have a BCC address added automatically for all messages that have them in the subject: "Special price for our customers", "Summer discounts", etc.

What about exceptions to BCC/CC rules, how does it work?

Let's say you've created a rule to BCC all outgoing messages sent from one of your Outlook accounts. But you don't want this rule to be applied to one particular address, yourfriend@domain.com. You take your Auto BCC rule in Outlook, open the Exceptions tab and add this address to the corresponding field. You can also create rule exceptions based on the Account Name, Subject, Attached file names as well as To and CC fields.

Can I see when CC/BCC addresses are added?

Yes, for this use the Turn on notifications option. You can choose either to see a desktop message with the CC/BCC added each time you send an email, or even manage adding blind carbon copies.

Is it possible to keep the Auto BCC in Outlook silent and invisible?

If you need the Auto BCC tool to be invisible in Outlook, e.g. if you want to use it for monitoring outgoing e-mail in your company, check out Silent BCC for Outlook. Once installed, the plug-in will deliver the Blind Carbon copies of all messages sent from all user accounts of a given PC, and e-mail senders will never know that a BCC copy was sent from their machines.
