When composing a message I always want to see the BCC and From field.
How can I do that?
Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016
When composing a message, select the Options tab and press the “Show BCC” and “Show From” buttons to enable them.
When you use Outlook 2013 or Outlook 2016 and reply or forward an email from the Reading Pane, the Show Fields group can be found all the way to the right on the Message tab.
Note 1: The From field will always be visible in Outlook 2010, Outlook 2013 and Outlook 2016 when you have more than one account configured. You cannot disable the From field then either.
Note 2: Having difficulty finding other features? See the guide; Where do I find…?
Select the Options tab and press the “Show BCC” and “Show From” buttons to enable them.
