BCC for Email Warning and Alerts?
« on: January 11, 2018, 04:17:15 PM »
I've noticed that when I get an emailed warning or alert that the top name in my list is always shown in the 'To' box on the received email.. I'd like that whole list to be BCC.  I see that option in the Weather Report setup, but not in the Warning Alerts & E-mail.  Could that be added or am I missing a way to do this?

Thank you!

BCC means a blind carbon copy
i.e all others in the list
the problem is , at least 1 email needs to be at least in the sendto setting
normally you would have the first  in the list as being your own email
so that is the one shown for the sendto

the warning email is BCC for all others in the list

I'm sure you don't need a TO: field and can send an email to only a BCC list..  I do it on a lot of my mass emails to various distribution groups... 

In my case right now these emails go out to an entire distribution list in a school district.. I received multiple complaints today as to why the "TO" was to somebody other than themselves..  It can be done only as BCC though, give it a try on whichever email client you use..

its not possible
otherwise you get error
165: Please specify a recipient (To).
if you set the sendto as blank
