    Hi I did this last week with my sent emails folder and it worked perfectly. When I try it again now, the map custom fields and next button are both greyed out. Tried it with different folders and .pst files. Haven't changed anything. Not sure why its not getting through. Anyone has faced this issue?

      Yes. The third person on BCC will see all information of the email except for other persons on BCC.
