Send an email with the BCC feature in Yahoo Mail
BCC stands for Blind Copy. In the context of an email, the person who is the BCC will see the message, but no other recipient will see their name. So the BCC feature can be used to send emails to multiple people without knowing who else is receiving the message.
The instructions in this article apply to the web versions of Yahoo Mail and the Yahoo Mail mobile app for Android and iOS.
How to BCC Recipients of Messages in Yahoo Mail
BCC recipients by message in Yahoo! Mail:
Select CC BCC (right of the field) To who †
In the Yahoo Mail mobile app CC BCC is under the field To who † In Yahoo Mail Basic box BCC already visible when you write a message.
Select field BCC and enter the recipient’s email address or select addresses from your Yahoo! postal address book.
Your message must contain at least one recipient in the field To who † If you don’t want the recipient to be visible, you can enter your own Yahoo Mail address.
Why use BCC?
The BCC feature helps protect the privacy of your email recipients. For example, if you’re sending a change of address message, you might want everyone to know, but everyone in your contacts might not know each other.
If you’re sending something more personal, like a party invite, it’s best to send separate messages. Using templates can speed up the process.
On the other hand, if you include too many addresses in the BCC field, your email may be marked as spam, meaning people may never see your email.
