NoBCC for Microsoft Exchange Server 2013/2016


Sometimes there exists a requirement to disable the BCC functionality completely for outgoing email message in Exchange environment. There is no way to do that via the Exchange administrative tools. Some people suggested to hide the BCC field in Outlook, but there is no legal way to remove BCC field from Outlook address book window or from OWA.
NoBCC for Microsoft Exchange 2013/2016 application, being installed on Exchange server, removes the BCC addresses from the outgoing emails.
The application is a custom transport agent.

Current version:


On your Exchange 2013/2016 Mailbox Server:
1. Select (or create) a user account that is a member of the local Administrators and Domain Users security group.
2. Log on as that user.
3. Create C:\Program Files\NoBCC\ folder.
4. Download archive file to C:\Program Files\NoBCC\ directory and extract all files.
5. Navigate to C:\Program Files\NoBCC\NoBCC_Ex2013-2016 folder and run NoBCCSetup.exe. Click Install button. Make sure that NoBCC is appeared in the list of Transport agents. Click Enable button. Click Exit button to close the program.


1. Open Outlook and create a new mail message. Click Options and enable the BCC field. Fill out the To: and BCC: fields with the addresses you can control. Populate the Subject: line with “NoBCC Test X”.

2. Send the message.
3. Make sure that John Doe (TO: recipient) is received the test message but Jane White (BCC: recipient) is not received it.

We have tested NoBCC on Exchange 2013 CU9/CU10/CU11 and on Exchange 2016.


Run NoBCCSetup.exe. Click Uninstall button. Make sure that NoBCC is not in the list of Transport agents. Click Exit button to close the program.

About this demo version.

NoBCC demo version removes only the BCCed messages with the Subject line containg TEST string.


Q. I am having trouble getting the program to work. When I enable the transport agent, I get 1052 and 16023 errors in Event Viewer and the Transport service will not stay running.
A. Exchange uses the Network Service account for the Transport Service credentials and it seems this account didn’t get security permissions to NoBCC program folder. Try to add Network Service account read permissions to that folder.
