  • Hi,

    Go to Active Directory for Users & Computers, go to your Domain's group policy and edit it.  

    User Config >> Administrative Templates >> microsoft outlook 2007 >> Disable items in user interface >> Predefined >> POLICY "disable command bar buttons and menu items"

    Then change the policy and enable everything but BCC field.

    For more detailed steps, you can refer to this article:

    Hope that helps.

  • Well! Im facing the same issue , the Outlook 2007 GPO disables the just BCC in the Message interface and you cant enable it.

    But as Mohammad said , it wont disable the BCC in the address book which makes the Disable BCC option useless!!


    I think this problem can be solved if we use Disable Items in User Interface --> Custom instead of Predefined !

    but we still need Command Bar ID for the BCC Command Bar in the Address Book.


    Can anyone provide us with that Command Bar ID , Please ?


    Thanx in advance

  • Bumping this thread . . . has anybody been able to figure this out?

    To reiterate: the issue is hiding/disabling the BCC button on the Global Address List window, as hayani showed above.
