Microsoft Outlook Web Access 2007 - Hide The BCC Input
Back to Articles page
After I wrote an
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
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:
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.
