If you have a client you are constantly ccing or should you just want to cc yourself but do not want to have to manually select or key in the recipients e-mail address each time, creating a rule is a handy way to accomplish this because it greatly narrows the margin for error such as forgetting to fill in the cc address. Once you have a rule in place it is convenient and easy to accomplish this task.
Follow the steps below to learn how to create a cc for yourself with every e-mail you send:
- Launch Word, whether it is 2013 or 2010.
- After selecting Manage Rules & Alerts in the Move group of your Ribbon on the Home tab, the Rules and Alerts dialog will display.
- Click the New Rule option.
- In the Rules Wizard, click Apply rule on messages I send.
- Click Next to continue.
- Now, another dialog box will display.
- First select through the specified account box in step 1.
- Then, click the word Specified in step 2 below.
- After selecting the account, click OK to return to the previous window where you will see the selected account showing in the Rules Wizard.
- Click Next.
- In the Wizard that displays, select Cc the message to people or public group.
- Then click on people or public group.
- In the Rule Address dialog box, double -click your cc recipient to add the address to the To text box. If you want to cc yourself, select or key in your own e-mail address in the To column.
- Click OK.
- It will now return to the previous window and you can see the cc recipient address appearing.
- Click Finish.
- It will now return to the very beginning dialog box.
- Click OK. and your rule will be created. If you decide against it, simply deselect it.
Your Rule has now been created and thereafter when you send an e-mail message to others with your specified account, your account of your specified cc recipient will always receive a cc of the same message.
