Does using BCC allow recipients to reply to the other recipients?

What I am trying to determine, if we use a distribution list through blind
carbon copy e-mail feature and should a recipient that receives the e-mail
respond back by hitting "reply to all", will the reply e-mail actually go to
all the recipients on the list or only to the sender of the original message?
We want to send e-mails to a distribution list that goes to several hundred
customers which will hide their addresses and will not allow for a potential
mass reply. We use Microsoft Outlook 2003. Any suggestions would be helpful.
Thanks!

I want to send a message as Information only. Therefore, I don't want the
recipients to reply to me. Please show me how to stop them replying.

Program : Window 7 Prof, outlook 2010 in Office 2010 Professional suite

Problem : Address Book do not show Contacts email

Profile : Outlook

Created New outlook data file Pst with zero data save in E drive, Key in a new contact & save , then try creating new email, when click "To" in the message, Address Book is empty.

And under Contact Properties , it does not allow me to check the check box " Show this folder as an Email Address book" beside Name of address book " Contacts"

 

Pls. tell me how to overcome this, here it does not involve ant transfer of old 2007 pst to  outlook 2010

Many Thanks

Ben

it will only maximize or minimize, why did it stop allowing me to size the
window?

Hello again,

I hope I don't start stepping on someone's nerves by asking these
question, but it really seems I'm too stupid for this...

I created an customized appointment item of which I only want to use my
P. 2. To imitate the start / end menu of the standard appointment page,
I put a DTPicker control on my page and assigned the start/end values to
this control - works fine, once I inserted the item_open function that
initializes the controls (Thanks to the outlookcode.com team)

Now, I thought it'd be much nicer if the controls were really the same
way as in the original appointment page 1. That is, one control for the
day and one for the time. So I put 2 DTP for each start/end value on the
form. I use the dtpcustom format for all and assign ddd, dd:MM:yy to
one and hh:mm to the other. Fine so far. The only bad thing is that if I
really open one such form, changing the date in the first control really
changes the date, but changing the time in the second control has no
effect at all.

I suppose I can work around this by writing a function that extracts the
time from on control, the date from the other, creates a date object
from those, and assignes this to .Start and .End. But this would be such
a messy way, and I'm sure this problem must apply to many persons -
anyone got any hints?

Thanks,

Oliver


New Computer runs on Window 7 Prof. and Outlook 2010 (part of Office 2010)

Old Computer runs on Window XP and Outlook 2007 (part of Office 2007)

Copied outlook 2007 PST file and paste on New Computer

On running Outlook 2010 on new machine by opening directly PST file of outlook 2007

The outlook 2010 show the contact list being populated correctly, but when open Address Book it is empty.

When try to search It say "The search cannot be completed. You must have an address list to search in. If you don't have an address list, contact your Microsoft Exchange Administrator" (I use it as stand alone machine)

Subsequently I go to the Contacts Properties, in the tab indicating Outlook Address Book, the Name of address book show "Contacts"

In the same tab, the check the box next to the following wordings " Show this folder as an e-mail Address Book" is unchecked, and do not allow me to check it.

I have also run Scanpst .exe on this pst file, and also reinstalled the outlook(including the office suite) but same problem still persist.

Secondly If I delete the Pst file, when opening the outlook 2010, it say the pst file cannot be located, so it close itself.

How can I get outlook to open a totally new empty pst file so that I can test it out if it still give the same problem when I input a contact and it does not show up in address book.

 

Can you pls. help please, very much appreciated, Thanks

Since I installed 07 and set it to work with my bt (yahoo) account it does
not allow anyone to reply to an email that has originated in outlook. The
message they receive is

Technical details of permanent failure:
PERM_FAILURE: SMTP Error (state 13): 550 :
Recipient address rejected: User unknown in virtual alias table

Any ideas on how to resolve this?

I run Outlook 2007 at home with several different accounts: one is my work
Exchange account (run via RPC over HTTP) and the others are all POP3
accounts. One of the POP3 accounts is set to be my default email account.

Everything works beautifully except when I reply to emails that were sent to
my work email account. Sometimes Outlook uses the work account to reply
(which is desired, obviously -- I don't want my co-workers using my personal
email address), and sometimes it chooses my default account.

Now, I've read some things online about how Outlook will choose any old
account to sent through if it's having problems with the chosen account.
However, this problem happens before I send, not after. When I reply to an
email that was sent to my work account, it should come up on the reply email
that "This message will be sent using the account." This happens, of
course, before the message is ever sent (and thus before Outlook realizes if
there's any trouble with the work account). Again, sometimes it does,
sometimes it doesn't -- sometimes no message like that comes up on the reply
email, which means Outlook is choosing, for some reason, to use my default
account to reply instead.

I can't really discern a pattern going on. I thought at one time it replied
through my default account for certain co-workers (with a different email
address format) than others, but that didn't seem to hold up.

I understand that I can manually choose the account through which I want to
reply by clicking the Account button on the reply email, but I don't want to
have to do that every time (I reply to dozens and dozens of work emails each
day, much like most of us).

Also, I know that I could set my work email account as my default account,
but the problem is that I originate more personal email than I do work email,
so I'd constantly have to be changing accounts for when I send personal email.

Does anyone have any idea what's happening? It's a simple request, really --
just use the account that was emailed to reply with. That's it! It works with
all of my other accounts flawlessly, just not this Exchange account.

Thanks for any help you can provide.

i am using atrial version of outlook but when i try to reply to the email it
wont let me, the reply word is not lit in the tool bar?

At work I use Notes, at home Outlook 2007 connected to gmail.

Much as I hate Notes, one feature that I use there frequently is Reply to
All, BUT AFTER I've already started replying to only the sender. In Notes
the composing window has a button that allows you to change the reply to a
Reply to All.

In Outlook I can't find that. If a reply message gets started and then you
decide it should be Reply to All, you have to copy the text you've typed,
cancel the message, start a new one with Reply to All, and paste in the
copied text. At least that's the only way I've found

Does anybody know an easier way?

Everytime I use bcc, the a copy of the message "seems" to get stuck in the
outbox. It seems that the recipients do receive the message.

Hi,

apologies if this has come up before - my searches were fruitless for something similar.

I often email my customers with product information, and of course I would like to always remember to place their email addresses in the BCC field to protect their privacy.

I'm worried that one day I might accidentally put their addresses in the "To" field, and expose their email to all the other recipients of the email.

Is there some sort of rule (or alternative) that evaluates an email before sending, with the following logic:

If count of recipients in "To" field >= 5, then move all recipients to "BCC" field before sending

I've had a look at creating a rule from scratch and can't find anything that looks for the number of recipients.

I'm using Outlook 2010, and I'm on an exchange server but I couldn't tell you what version I'm afraid.

Thanks in advance for any advice

How can I allow certain users to edit the Global Address List. I have tried giving them security permission to the all global address list container but this does not seem to do bugger all. I want to set it up so that the users can add, delete and edit entries in the GAL from Outlook XP.

Is it just me or does anyone find the system manager for 2000 more confusing than the 5.5 admin program?

Thanks.....

Dear All,
 
I have exchange server 2003 standard edition with SP-2 with 1 mailbox store (59.5 GB including the priv1.edb and priv1.stm files and logs) and 1 private store that I am not using. I have set the registry to use 75 GB on exchange mailbox store. As my mailbox store is growing every day I would like to reduce the size of my mailbox store, which is possible by performing an offline defragmentation that I believe can corrupt my store and takes a lot of time, which I could not afford.
I want to know does exchange standard allows me to create another storage group, create another mailbox store, and migrate all the mailboxes from old store to the newly created store to just have the actual sized mailboxes without any white space. Please note that I have exchange standard, which allows only one store per group.
 
I want to know whether the above plan is do able and can solve my problem.
 
Thank you,

Hi,

I belong to a non-work affinity group of 12 people - we would like to hide
the string of addresses in the TO line but be able to respond either to the
writer of a message or to all in the group - how can this be managed most
easily?
I use Outlook 2003, but others have a variety of email software, including
at least one person using a mac.

Dear all

Do someone can tell me about the Outlook technique, I want to force the
recipient read my email and not allow to delete my email before read it.

thx

I thought I was pretty good at this stuff but I am not able to figure this
out. I recieve a daily email that I want to automatically forward to a
group. How can I do this without putting the recipients in the "To" field,
but rather in the "Bcc" field? Obviously, I do not want the recipients to
see the others addresses.

Thanks in advance!

I am currently using Outlook 2007 and am trying to send an email to a group
of people using bcc. However, when I do, the receipents get the email and
they can see every person's email address in the "To" line. If I go to my
Sent folder to look at the email I sent, the "To" line is blank and the "bcc"
does not show, so there is no way to see who the email went to.

Why can the receipents see the email addresses when I specifically used bcc?
Kind of defeats the purpose!

I have just started using Outlook. I exported the list of RSS feeds I was
using in IE and imported that to Outlook. In IE I could look at the
properties of the RSS feed and get the URL.

Like most things in Outlook this is either not possible or is hidden in a
place I cannot find.

On the properties there are a text field which allows me to change the text
displayed in Outlook, the location of the folder, a Home page which I might
have though would be the URL. But no initial URL. Outlook has that info
since it can sync to the RSS feed.

A buddy and myself have now officially proclaimed Outlook the worst program
in the world. It may look ok but functionally it does not really meet
expectation of a program for the 21st century.

Is it possible to send an invitation without allowing each recipient to see
the other recipients? I know how to use the BCC feature in a regular email,
but BCC doesn't seem to be available in the Calendar invite. I've tried
using a distribution group but that doesn't work either.
