Outlook users one and all...
...If someone sends me an email, cc'd to some, and blind cc'd to others, and I "Reply to All", do the individuals listed under BLIND CC get a copy as well, even though I can't see it?

Nope.

Wrong. That's another crappy Microsoft quirk. The blind ccs get replied to also. Sorry. If you don't want anyone to know who is blind cced, don't use the reply to all command.

Do you mean that when you "reply to all", it shows the addresses of people in the "blind cc:" list?

If your "reply to all" is set to give reciepts, will you get them from people in the "blind cc:" list?

When you reply to all, you will reply to all on the blind cc list so the addresses should show up.

We had MS Outlook where I used to work, and they told us to NEVER blind cc anyone. The reason: if someone you cced down the line hit reply to all, they would reply to all of those who were blind cced. This may only be true if they are using MS Outlook also. If they were using another type of email software and hit reply to all, I don't know whether the blind ccs would be revealed. Don't ya just love Microsoft and all of their squirrelly bugs?!

Not completely sure. At my work, I could only get receipts from others that used MS Outlook. In that case I would get the receipt from someone on the blind cc list.

Hope that helps.

Ok, I'm new at posting using quotes and bold and such. Please forgive my funny-looking reply.
