Use flexible conditions to create your Outlook auto BCC rule
You can take advantage of the two new features introduced in Auto BCC that let your rules get even more flexibility:
Conditions for BCC/CC rules
- If Account is - automatically add BCC recipient for those Outlook messages that are sent from the selected e-mail account.
- If the subject line contains - Trigger Outlook Blind Carbon Copy rule for emails with the specified keywords in the subject.
- If attachment name contains - send CC or BCC based on key words in the attachment name.
- If To: contains - Use the recipient's email address or its part as a condition for sending BCC copy automatically.
- If CC: contains - add a blind copy if the email address or its part in the CC field coincides with the one you enter as a condition.
Use several key phrases for each condition.
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.
Exceptions to BCC/CC rules.
Here is how it works. 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, email@example.com. You take your Auto BCC rule in Outlook, open the "Exceptions" tab and add this address into 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.
See when CC/BCC addresses are added
If you want to make sure that CC or BCC address has been added, benefit from 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 copies with the option to show a confirmation dialog that has the Add and send and Send without adding buttons.
Keep the Auto BCC in Outlook silent and invisible
If you need the Auto BCC tool that is absolutely 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.
