Outlook has a rule to automatically Cc another person on outgoing messages, but no equivalent for Bcc. To set it up follow the steps: 

 

1.) Inside outlook: Open VB Editor (Alt F11) or Tools-Macros-VB Editor: Use the Application . ItemSend event, which fires whenever a user sends a message or other item. Use following code 

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
    Dim objMe As Recipient
    Set objMe = Item.Recipients.Add(“myaddress@mydomain.dom“) 
    objMe.Type = olBCC 
    objMe.Resolve 
    Set objMe = Nothing 
End Sub

This works on Windows 7 and Outlook 2010. It assumes you have installed the entire Office 2010 suite. Here’s the order of steps:

With Outlook NOT running, click the START button, click on All Programs, click on Microsoft Office, Click on Microsoft Office 2010 Tools, click on Digital Certificate for VBA Projects.

In the “Create Digital Certificate” window, in the field “Your certificate’s name:” enter “autobcc”. (enter any name you wish). Click OK. There is no confirmation or screens after that.

Launch Outlook 2010. Click the tab labeled “File” at the top of the screen, it’s to the left of “Home”. Click the “Options” item in the left side bar. An Outlook Options popup window will appear. Click “Trust Center” at the bottom of the left side bar. In the main panel under Microsoft Outlook Trust Center, click the button labeled “Trust Center Settings…”. The Trust Center popup window will appear. Click “Macro Settings” in the left side bar. Under the “Macro Settings” heading, click the third radio button next to “Notifications for all Macros”. *Note – with this option and after you are done with all of the steps, you will be prompted to allow macros each and every time you launch Outlook. You could select “Enable all macros…”, but the risk is not worth the inconvenience of clicking one button during Outlook startup). Click OK and the Trust Center window. It will go away without further prompts. Click OK in the Outlook Options window. It will go away without further prompts.

With Outlook still running, press Alt + F11. The “Microsoft Visual Basic for Applications – VbaProjects.()TM” Appears. In the left side bar, expand “Project1 (VbaProject.OTM)”. Expand “Microsoft Outlook Objects”. Click “ThisOutlookSession”. In the main panel on the “VbaProject.OTM – ThisOutlookSession (Code) window, select “Application” from the left pull down. Select “ItemSend” from the right pull down. Delete the page contents and past the content from this article. Here it is again…

 

Private Sub Application_ItemSend(ByVal Item As Object, Cancel As Boolean)
Dim objMe As Recipient
Set objMe = Item.Recipients.Add(“myaddress@mydomain.dom“)
objMe.Type = olBCC
objMe.Resolve
Set objMe = Nothing
End Sub

Substitute myaddress@mydomain.dom with the address you wish to receive automatic BCC messages. Write your address within the quotation marks.

Click the disk icon in the upper left corner of the window to save the project and stay in the project window.

Pull down the Tools menu and select “Digital Signature”.
