    BCC doesn't show when you print from sent items (2000)

    If I send a message that has a bcc, then I go to Sent Items to print that message, I want the BCC to show and it doesn't. It shows only To and From. Anyone know if this can be done. Microsoft says it's a designed in feature. I know I could print screen and paste it and print it that way, but that won't work for my users.

    when we need it printed (rare) we hit forward or reply and copy the addresses from the bcc field and paste them in the top of the message, then print.

    ... and the BCC line isn't included if you save the message to a text or rtf file.

    Another way is to choose Tools, Forms, Design This Form..., then change the field drop-down to All Mail Fields, then drag BCC into the header area, then right-click it and choose Properties, then click the third tab (Validation) and tick the box for Include this Field for Printing and Save As, then Save the message, then open it again and print. What a major hassle.

    Since I use a BCC for outgoing client messages, I created a custom message form with my header/signature/confidentiality notice and added the BCC field so it would print every time. I found this to be a somewhat arduous process of trial and error, since I needed to customize the , and it doesn't look all that pretty on the screen, but it does work for messages I initiate. When I reply, however, I don't get that form. (Gee, I wonder if I can change it for printing?)

    I posted a message a while ago about the negative impacts of making a custom form the default form for all incoming and outgoing mail; the trade-offs were not worth it for me.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: BCC doesn't show when you print from sent items (2000)

    Since we're on this subject maybe you can help me a related dilemma. I use BCC to address emails to a large group of IM personnel. This works well because obviously there is no big huge list of recipients at the top of the email. The problem is that I sent an email to this group with news about an assoicate passing a test as a congratulatary email, and one user (administrator) thought I had sent him as a BCC and wanted to know if it was ok if he replied to congratulate her. How can I make them understand that it wasn't really a BCC but a convenience as listed above? I don't want to point out the obvious. So, I'm thinking that I could create a new address field called something else? Any ideas?

    i'd probably do a mail merge. They'll each get the message with their name in the to field.
