Use blind copy in Apple Mail on the Mac: Here's how!

If you want to send an email on your Apple Mac and enter recipients for the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy), you may not have the required field. But that does not mean that it is impossible to use blind copy in Apple Mail on the Mac. You only have to activate the corresponding address field once. It should then always be displayed when you compose an email - both for completely new emails and for replies to one or more people. Here you can find out how you can activate and deactivate the blind copy field via the app menu or a key combination.

Via the menu: Activate blind copy in Mail on the Apple Mac

If the line or the field for hidden recipients of an email is not yet displayed in the Apple program under macOS, you can change it quickly. This is the procedure via the menu bar at the top of the screen:

  1. Opens the mail App (via Launchpad, the Applications folder, the Dock, etc.)
  2. Click on in the menu bar presentation
  3. Select the item from the drop-down menu "Blind copy" address field

If you now reply to a received message or write a new message, the address field should be visible. There you can enter all those recipients who should not be displayed to the other people who receive the mail. 

As a shortcut: Show BCC in Apple Mail under macOS

On the screenshot of the menu instructions you can already see that there is also a key combination for activating the “blind copy” address field in Apple Mail under macOS. The shortcut is command + option + B or cmd + alt + B or [⌘] + [⌥] + [B]. If you only need the BCC field once, you can activate and deactivate it with this shortcut. This saves you a few clicks and you can send your emails the way you want without taking your hands off the keyboard;) More useful Mac keyboard shortcuts are available here: Book tip - keyboard shortcuts for the Mac by Jonas Kraft.
