    Auto BCC when using 'send on behalf of' (2000)

    We use Outlook 2000. Is there a way to set it up so that if I have send on behalf of rights, the person I'm sending on behalf of is automatically bcc'd on the email? Thanks

    You can create a macro to address a message (this will trigger security alarm bells if you use the built-in methods, which you can work around with the Redemption library), but that may be more work that you want to do. As an alternative, at least for new messages, you could create a form or a template (OFT file) for these messages. That wouldn't help with forwards or replies, though.

    <P ID="edit" class=small>(Edited by JohnBF on 21-Oct-04 14:55. This code is better. Could be even better to test for the specific bosses' name.)</P>There's also the matter of disciminating between when the delegatee is sending "On Behalf Of" vs. when the delegatee is sending in his/her own name. The FROM line will state:

    Barrow, Clyde C.; on behalf of; Parker, Bonnie

    I think that for this reason most of the AA's in my company are given rights to the delegator's inbox, and open it and send mail directly from there, which also means that the delegator has a copy, avoiding the OP's problem.

    To use code I guess you'd have to do something like:

    Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim recipBoss As Outlook.Recipient
    With item
    If .Sendername <> .SentOnBehalfOfName Then
    Set recipBoss = .Recipients.Add("")
    Set recipBoss.Type = olBCC
    End If
    End With
    End Sub

    But my day has been <img src=/w3timages/censored.gif alt=censored border=0> and this is untested.
