Mailform and Bcc

Post by oldnema » Tue Mar 14, 2017 9:39 pm

Hi experts, it is possible to modify the form were to send a blind copy to another email address?
Thank you, Josef

Hi Josef!

It seems that this is not possible. You could, however, change your email adress, and set up the desired forwarding for this new email address.

Hi Christoph, thank you for your response - your suggestion is useless for me, so use a plugin Advancedform_XH.

Oops, I totally misunderstood your request (I read "forum" instead of "form"). But indeed, it's not possible to add CC or BCC for the built-in mailform, and using Advancedform_XH seems to be a sensible workaround. :)

E-Mail addresses separated by comma should work. Example: email01@example.com, email02@example.com
But this is not a "Blind Copy", but a "Carbon Copy" :?

Indeed :!: Guess this should either be documented, or fixed.

Well, actually it shouldn't be copy, but rather 2 (or more) separate mails are supposed to be sent, if I'm not mistaken.

Well, not quite. It's simply a mail with multiple recipients, and as usual in this case either recipient can see the others, and the MUA usually offers a "reply to all" functionality also. I consider this to be a nice feature, so I've documented it.
