BCC recipients in outgoing email


In the configuration of "Email This Issue Plugin" it is possible to specify people in CC.

Is there any way to configure for recipients to be in bcc?

Hi Jacques, please open the Configuration tab, scroll to the bottom of the page and tick the option: "Enable BCC recipients". This will make sure that you can enter BCC recipients in the various screens.


OK! found it! :)

As mentioned in another issue I would think it wise to think about a way to configure "post-function" options differently than human interface options. Things I like post functions to do (like send BCC mails) might not be what I want end users to be able to do.

Just a thought...

As always: thanks for your help!


Hi Jacques,

BCC is coming soon, please watch this issue to get updates on the progress.



BCC support is implemented, and will be released soon in 5.3.

hi Tibor, I've just downloaded the latest version ( and I see that in the general configuration there is now the option to add people or "roles" as BCC.

Nevertheless I'm looking to have BCC in the "Configure Notification Event" page. I only want to use BCC in specific cases (like post-events). Is that something that is still being worked on, or isn't this going to be implemented?
