    Hello folks!

    I really need some help with this one! :D

    I'm trying to Auto BCC every email that I write on Apple Mail to a different address ( I use this for backing up my emails).

    The rules don't allow me to do this, and the scripts for Terminal that I've found online don't give me the option to BCC OTHER people when I need to.

    Do you have a solution for this?

    Thank you :apple:

    There is no need for a script, you can turn on the BCC field in Mail. With a new message open go to the View menu & select Bcc Address Field. It will then have a check next to the menu item & will appear in new messages.

    Hi Peggy,

    That's actually not the problem. I see my BCC field actually. All I'm trying to do is always bcc a copy of every email to an address automatically without having to always type in the address.

    Essentially, when I type a new email and send it to "Bob", I want it to automatically also send a copy to "". No matter who I write an email to, I want it to bcc to "".

    [Edit: Whoops, misunderstood question; I was only giving directions on the pref to BCC yourself.]
