As we all known, all recipients in “To”, “CC” or “BCC” fields, will get the attachments when sending emails with attachments. However, some users want to send the attachments to the “To” recipients only, with the “CC” and “BCC” recipients just getting the message without the attachments. How could you solve this job in Outlook?
