    Outlook 2000 ((SR-1 9.0.0.4527))

    I work at a law firm and it is common for us to e-mail documents to one party and send a blind carbon copy (bcc) to another party simultaneously. We usually like to print a confirmation from the "Sent Items" folder; however we have noticed that while the "bcc" information appears on the e-mail header information, it does not print on the confirmation copy. This makes it impossible to keep a record of who received a blind carbon copy of that e-mail. Do any of you experts know how to make the bcc information print on the "Sent Items" confirmation copy?

    There was an old thread on this, but with Search disabled, I'm not sure how far back it is. Enter the rudimentary VBA Code in the attachment into the the Outlook VBA module. (You may need set Macro security to low, close and restart Outlook.) Then attach the code to a macro button, and substitute the Print Button face as the Macro button. Note the warning about deleting Drafts. For more a more powerful solution, invoke Word as the print engine, as OldDog demonstrates <!post=here,259455>here<!/post>.

    I created the macro with the code you provided and it worked perfectly! Thank you so much for your help. I would never have been able to write that macro.

    What I've done is created my own form for messages I originate. If it's reply or forward, my form isn't used.

    For infrequent uses, the "other way" is the following tedious procedure:
    1. <LI>Open message and choose Tools>Forms>Design This Form
      <LI>From the field chooser, change the list to All Mail Fields and drag BCC to the header area (e.g., under the date)
      <LI>Right-click the BCC field, choose Properties, then the Validation tab, and check Include this field for Printing and Save As, click OK
      <LI>Close the message, saving changes
      <LI>Re-open and print the message, mopping sweat from brow.
    Sounds like John's macro is a better approach. <img src=/S/laugh.gif border=0 alt=laugh width=15 height=15>

    Especially considering that you may have written it! <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15> I keep all these useful bits of code around and don't remember what is 'borrowed' and what I wrote. <img src=/S/shrug.gif border=0 alt=shrug width=39 height=15>
