What happens if someone replies to a BCC email?

What happens if someone replies to a BCC email?

Recipients will receive the message, but won’t be able to see the addresses listed in the BCC field. Addresses that have been placed in the BCC field are not forwarded. If you have placed a large list of recipients in the To or CC field, all of them will receive the reply.

Can you reply all BCC?

Re: Does “Reply all” send replies to BCC recipients? No. Reply All will only be able to reply to the e-mail addresses sent along with the e-mail in the headers. BCC addresses are never sent to the recipient in the e-mail headers.

Why reply all is bad?

Never use “Reply all” to disagree with or correct someone. That is between you and the sender, not the others on the email. It’s a bit like pointing out that someone did something wrong in an in-person meeting. Doing so shames the other person in front of others.

Is BCC really hidden?

BCC stands for “blind carbon copy.” Unlike with CC, no one but the sender can see the list of BCC recipients. However, the BCC list is secret—no one can see this list except the sender. If a person is on the BCC list, they’ll see only their own email on the BCC list.

Can BCC recipients see each other?

Do BCC recipients see each other? No, they do not. Recipients that have been BCC’d will be able to read the email, but they won’t be able to see who else received it. Only the sender can see everyone that was BCC’d.

How do I send a mass email without recipients seeing each other?

You can put any addresses you like in the “To” or “Cc” fields along with any you put in the “Bcc” field. Just remember that only the addresses in the “Bcc” field are hidden from recipients. You can also leave the “To” or “Cc” fields blank and just sent the message to the addresses in the “Bcc” field.

Can you tell if someone is blind copied on email?

BCC simply sends the email to someone without their name being on the email at all. That’s what “blind” is all about: you can’t see that they’ve been sent the email. In fact, recipients of the email can’t tell whether anyone was BCC’ed or not. The information simply isn’t included in the email message.

Does a BCC know they are BCC?

Figure out who you BCC’d. As you know, recipients can’t tell who you included in the BCC field, or even if you used the BCC field at all. But that doesn’t mean you can’t. To see who you BCC’d in a previous email, just open the Sent mail folder and open the message.

How do you use CC and BCC in email?

If you want a “To” recipient to know other important people are aware of the correspondence, use “Cc.” If you want to maintain an inclusive email chain, use either “To” or “Cc.” If you are sending an impersonal email or one with a large mailing list, use the “Bcc.”

How do I see undisclosed recipients?

The thing to do is actually very simple. Go to the Sent mail folder in your email program. In the Sent mail folder, open up one of the messages that you had bcc’ed recipients on.

What is the point of CC in email?

The CC field allows you to send a copy of the email with any recipient of your choice. In most cases, the CC field is used to keep someone in the loop, or to share the same email with them. Unfortunately, this creates a literal copy of the same email in the recipient’s inbox.

Is CC or BCC private?

Should I reply to a CC email?

If you apologize when you forget to copy someone on an email unintentionally, simply forward it and say, “I meant to copy you on this email.” If you’re sorry you didn’t respond sooner to an email, decide if that’s because of a deadline you yourself put on it, or if it was something that required a timely response and …

How do you say you cc someone in an email?

Business emails are effective when they are concise, so that’s why it’s better to say cc’d or copied. So, you could say “I’ve cc’d Robert on this email.” Meaning the email goes to Matt for example, but Robert can also see it to keep him in the loop.

Is there a difference between To and CC?

CC stands for Carbon Copy. The TO and CC fields are often used interchangeably because no matter which one you use, there is little difference in the way your recipients view the email.

Who I copied or whom I copied?

When in doubt, try this simple trick: If you can replace the word with “he”’ or “’she,” use who. If you can replace it with “him” or “her,” use whom. Who should be used to refer to the subject of a sentence. Whom should be used to refer to the object of a verb or preposition.
