Outlook has a BCC warning built-in. However, it frequently does not work.

To receive a warning when you were potentially BCCed, follow these steps.

In Outlook, Click Categorize from the menu bar.

Review your changes. Click Finish. You may click "Run this rule now on messages already in Inbox" if desired.

This rule will flag any message that does not have your name in the To or CC field. Be aware if you receive an email that was addressed to a group, it will still categorize it as You may have been BCCed. This rule is not perfect, but it is better than not receiving any warning.
