    Is there any way you can turn off the notification that an email has been auto BCC'd? Very annoying!
    Thanks.

      Agreed! The pop up is distracting. There should be a way to turn it off.

    I've tried using Auto BCC but it is not working. I've followed the instruction as detailed above. What am I missing?
