Group as Bcc

Hi,

If I create a group of people I always send mail to. They all default as to: for example to:bob@golf.com.

If I want to use this group as a BCC instead then I have to go into the group and change them all to BCC. Is there a way I could just have a group that are BCC when I put them in the mail and CC when I put them in the mail CC?

Re: Group as Bcc

Hi,

Unfortunately, as far as I am aware, this functionality is not available at a Group level - if I'm understanding you correctly.

Cheers,
Laura Buckley

Re: Group as Bcc

Ok Thanks Laura,

The users say that it worked in the older version of GroupWise....but I am not sure if they are confusing this with something else...

I can expand the group on sending out in the GWIA which enables the users in the group to become individual mail items in the BCC. But there is no way to do this when sending internally..... an enhancement request perhaps?

Re: Group as Bcc

Hi,

I may have sent you on a wild goose chase here. I've done some further testing.

On version 14.2.1 (build 124014) of the client. I create a new mail. In the BCC field put in the Distribution Group and send out the mail. The recipients, members of the Distribution Group, receive the mail as a BCC's even though they are set to "normal" recipients in the group itself.

Please see what version of the client you are using.

Thanks,
Laura Buckley

Hi Laura,

Hope it's ok to post this on an old thread.

I found this thread as it describes an issue that we currently have. For one of our users, adding a Group to the BCC field of an email results in all recipients (group members) receiving the email as TO's. That is the "TO" setting in the group is over-riding the BCC setting in the email itself. The issue has been around for a while and upgrading the client to 14.2.1 22/11/2016 (build 125534) has not helped.

Do you know if there is there some setting that changes the priority of "TO" in the address book group over the "BCC" field in the actual email?

Regards,
Michael Smith

Hi Michael,

If you want group members to receive mail as BCC they need to be set in the group as BCC members.

Michael
I think it would be a good idea if it worked the way you suggest - or
at least was an admin option. You might want to consider making an
enhancement request at https://ideas.microfocus.com/mfi/novell-gw
