Please add BCC field to the email & email templates

Rick Wheeler shared this idea 4 years ago
Under Consideration

Please add the ability to specify the BCC for the email AND the email templates. This will be crucial for integrating with CRM such as PipeDrive.

Thanks.

Hi,

Thanks for taking the time to make this suggestion. There is currently a "Copy To" field available when editing an email template and its behaviour is dictated by the Setup > General Settings > Mail tab > Mail Type setting. If SMTP is selected the recipient will be CC'd, if set to phpmail() they will be BCC'd instead.

Does that help achieve your goals here?

Hi John

Personally I want to simply BCC the registration email. I don't want to use php mail function since it is less reliable in spam filters

Please add a BCC hook that we could easily use for whatever template we liked, rather than enabling all BCC. If one exists, some documentation on how to achieve it would be great.

Thanks

There is a handy enough way to do this in a custom hook.

Add a hook on "EmailPreSend" to set $CONFIG['BCCMessages'] to the address you want cced, if the messagename is the message you want to have the bcc on.
