When you are working on multiple devices, such as a smartphone, tablet and computer, it can be difficult to keep your files organized. This is particularly true with emails that you send from a different device, as your existing email setup may not be sending copies of sent emails to your server. One way to ensure that you always have an accessible record of a sent email is by configuring your iPhone to BCC you on every email that you send from the device. But if you are using your iPhone 5 to send a lot of emails, this can clutter your inbox. Fortunately this is a feature you can disable on the iPhone 5 by following the tutorial below.
Stop BCC’ing Yourself on the iPhone 5
Note that emails you send from your iPhone 5 will still appear in the Sent Items folder for their respective email accounts. By disabling the BCC option, you are simply stopping the iPhone from adding you as a BCC to the message, which is putting a copy of the message in your inbox.
Step 1: Open the Settings menu on the iPhone 5.
Step 2: Scroll down and select the Mail, Contacts, Calendars option.
Step 3: Scroll down and move the switch to the right of Always BCC Myself to the Off position.
