CNET Editors' review
If you're tired of hunting through your Contacts for addresses of people you want to include as CCs or BCCs to e-mails, this little Microsoft Outlook add-on automates the process and reduces your frustration.
Auto BCC/CC for Microsoft Outlook melds seamlessly with Outlook, adding only a small button to the e-mail client's toolbar. Its presence doesn't create a hurdle for the app's performance or the normal flow of its processes. Instead, in our tests, it complements Outlook's functionality, performing well as we used the add-on to supplement delivery of our messages with automatically added CC and BCC recipients. We liked that we could configure the add-on to automatically insert specified CC and BCC addresses according to particular subject lines. The only drawback in the automation was when we wanted to reply to only one person in an e-mail and the add-on wanted to respond to everyone in the specified CC and BCC list. A simple click resolved this issue, though.
The trial period is a bit brief, and the price--although not high--seems a bit steep when compared with the functionality the app adds to Outlook. But if your work focuses on sales leads and continually keeping a lot of people in the loop, you may find Auto BCC/CC for Microsoft Outlook worth the price.
From Add-in Express:
Auto BCC / CC for Microsoft Outlook is an email add-in that automatically adds BCC and/or CC recipients every time you send mail. You can create a BCC /CC for all outgoing emails, to the specified addresses only, or if the subject line or the attachment name contains particular words. A BCC will be sent for all outgoing messages, whether it is a new e-mail, an email reply or a forwarded message. Supports Outlook 2007, 2003, 2002 (XP), and 2000.
