How do you BCC when broadcasting an email message?

Postby mlh78 » Wed Mar 07, 2012 7:44 pm

I am using the send a message feature through clerk tools. I want to have the email addresses BCCd, but I cannot figure out how to make it work. Can anyone help me? Also, is there any way to insert a hyperlink? Thanks as always!

Blind carbon copy has not yet worked to my knowledge, although there is a spot suggesting it will eventually. Yes, you will spread everyone's email by using the "send a message" feature, even though they might have requested it to be hidden from the ward. Add a hyper link? No. but you can always add a manual web address, and some email programs will recognize it if you put it in the http://www.mysite.com format and make it a "clickable" hyperlink for you. Others may have to copy the address and paste it into their URL line.

Oddly enough, when I broadcast my message this afternoon, it automatically added the addresses in BCC. Strange.

Wouldn't surprise me if the developers gave it a "kick" and the BCC started working. These tools add functionality often. I hope to see formatting, reports of what was sent, ability to save and recall messages, etc. And SMS TXT since email is so "last year."
