OWA Hide Bcc Exchange 2007

Microsoft Outlook Web Access 2007 - Hide The BCC Input

Back to Articles page

After I wrote an article describing how to show the BCC input field by default on the OWA 2007 new message form, I suppose it was inevitable that someone should ask if it was possible to hide it completely.

First, look for the messageoptionsdialog.aspx file in the C:\Program Files\Microsoft\Exchange Server\ClientAccess\Owa\forms\premium folder. Make a copy of it (important if something goes wrong), and then open it in Notepad. Press F3 to begin a search, and find the text chkBcc. You should find a line that starts like this:

  <input type="checkbox" id="chkBcc">  

Go up to the line before it, and change the beginning of the <td tag, so that it looks like this:

  <td style="visibility:hidden"

Save the changes, and next time you compose a message in your OWA, the BCC checkbox should not be shown.

As with most of these type of modifications, you will need to check that they still function after each product update. Sometimes your modified file will be replaced by a new one from the update.
