MailMessage.Bcc Property

Gets the address collection that contains the blind carbon copy (BCC) recipients for this e-mail message.

Namespace: System.Net.Mail
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public MailAddressCollection Bcc { get; }
/** @property */
public MailAddressCollection get_Bcc ()

public function get Bcc () : MailAddressCollection

Not applicable.

Property Value

A writable MailAddressCollection object.

To add a BCC recipient to an e-mail message, create a MailAddress for the recipient's address, and then add that object to the collection returned by the Bcc property.

When recipients view an e-mail message, the Bcc addresses are usually not displayed.

The following code example demonstrates adding an address to the Bcc address collection.

public static void CreateBccTestMessage(string server)
{
    MailAddress from = new MailAddress("ben@contoso.com", "Ben Miller");
    MailAddress to = new MailAddress("jane@contoso.com", "Jane Clayton");
    MailMessage message = new MailMessage(from, to);
    message.Subject = "Using the SmtpClient class.";
    message.Body = @"Using this feature, you can send an e-mail message from an application very easily.";
    MailAddress bcc = new MailAddress("manager1@contoso.com");
    message.Bcc.Add(bcc);
    SmtpClient client = new SmtpClient(server);
    client.Credentials = CredentialCache.DefaultNetworkCredentials;
    Console.WriteLine("Sending an e-mail message to {0} and {1}.", to.DisplayName, message.Bcc.ToString());
    client.Send(message);
}
