Is it possible to configure to configure Microsoft Entourage 2008 or Outlook 2003/7 to always BCC a specific address, like you can with Mozilla Thunderbird?

If so, how?

If not, does anyone have suggestions on how to indirectly implement such a task? (on-demand private distribution lists, perhaps?)

With Entourage 2008, it is very similar.

  1. Go to Tools > Rules > New > Outgoing
  2. Choose Rule Name (You may choose to change "All messages" to Account and choose the specified account)
  3. Change "Set category" to "Redirect to" and fill in your BCC e-mail address in the box. (You may choose to uncheck the "Do not apply other rules to messages that meet these criteria)

If you change All messages (because you have multiple e-mail addresses) you will have to make a rule for each of the e-mail accounts you want to have BCC. Of course, if you have just one e-mail address, it makes it all much easier.
