Viewing a Sent Message's Bcc Recipients in Windows Mail

Go to "Sent Items"
Heinz Tschabitscher

The  recipients you entered in the Bcc: field in Windows Live Mail, Windows Mail or Outlook Express are not visible to each other, or any other recipient.

They are also hidden when you view the sent message in the Sent Items folder. However, it would helpful if you could find out who you bcc:ed on a message in Windows Live Mail, Windows Mail or Outlook Express. While the Bcc: recipients are not overtly visible, you can still uncover them if you want to make sure somebody got a copy.
