    Blind Copy

    I am using Outlook 2000 SR-1 on a network. I want to make every message I send put my name in the blind copy box. How do I do this?

    Is there a reason you do not want to use (OL98) Tools, Options, Preferences, E-Mail Options, check the option "Save Copies in Sent Items Folder"? It has the same result, except that the message is saved in a different folder. I find this less distracting than having messages to myself appear in the Inbox.

    You can create a Rule in OL98 to CC yourself, but apparently not to BCC yourself. Walk through the Rules Wizard in OL2000 and see if there is a BCC option under "What do you want to do with the message?"

    short of using rules, you'd need to make a custom with the bcc filled in.

    MaryJ, is there a way to specify that a custom form is the default - that is, to get your custom form when you click ctrl+n?

    What are the steps for making a "custom"?

    What I do is create a new message, then fill in whatever you want to be your defaults, including the options (receipts, etc.). Then choose Tools|Forms|Publish Form As... and give it a name. I typically save it in my Personal Forms Library, but then you need to create each new message using your personal form. Hopefully MaryJ knows a quicker path.

    Re: Blind Copy

    open message, add your address to the bcc field, then tools > forms > design this form. tools > forms > publish. see slipstick for instructions on how to use it.

    Many thanks to Jefferson and MaryJ for your words of wisdom! I am off tomorrow, but will try it on Monday on my newly "rebuilt" Windows & Office 2000 PC! Can't wait.
