CheckBCC is an add-in for Outlook that protects you from accidentally sending e-mails to a large number of recipients openly visible in the TO or CC field. Typical cases are, for example, an e-mail to a distribution list where you have placed the list in the CC field instead of the BCC field, or an accidental click on “Reply to all”. Before you know it, you have transmitted your complete customer list to all your customers or, as in the screenshot, you have revealed confidential information, which is not only unpleasant, but also a violation of the rules of the GDPR ().
With CheckBCC you no longer need to worry about this. Whenever you send an e-mail, CheckBCC becomes active and checks how many openly visible recipients are specified. If their number exceeds a limit set by you, CheckBCC asks if it would be better to move the recipients into the BCC field. (Of course, you can also decline this if you really want to send an e-mail openly to many recipients on one occasion).
CheckBCC works with Outlook for Windows from version 2010:
