Windows 10 Mail App: Why Can’t I See Bcc

Sunday, June 19th, 2016 by | Filed Under: E-Mail Help, Windows 10

I asked for your beefs with Windows 10 and here’s our first reader response: “My major beef with Window 10 email, it does not show recipients in Bcc sent items. Also old addresses I can not remove after being updated. I have had every Windows  version starting with DOS 3.1;  I’ll keep my older Win 7 computer as long as it’s supported.”

It is a puzzling omission from the Mail app. You can create blind copies, but you can’t see them in the Sent folder.

Here’s my message in the inbox.


And here’s what I see in the Sent folder.


Interestingly enough if you got to the webmail interface for your email account, you can see the BCC.

Deleting and editing contacts could also use some major work in the Mail app. But hopefully Microsoft will be tackling those issues with updates soon.

Fortunately, you aren’t limited to using only the Mail app in Windows 10. You can certainly continue to use Outlook, Live Mail, Thunderbird, or another email client. You can continue to use the same email client with Windows 10 that you’re using in Windows 7. If you upgrade, your messages shouldn’t be affected at all.

I use the Mail app in conjunction with Outlook. I like how the mail app interfaces with the rest of Windows 10, but I use Outlook when I need a fully featured program.

    I am with that lady 100%. It`s not fair that some pencelneck programmer(s) is changeing the way Hotmail was. Just as bad as yahoo is with their e mail presentation. Because of the adds, it takes me longer. click or click-click and wait if the ad doesn`t load then you don’t get that e mail your after. plus you cant save anything to hardrive anymore. Google is the only way to fly when it comes to e- mail to my opinion
