The Blind Side of E-Mail

BY J. CARLTON COLLINS

Q: If someone has sent you an e-mail and it was also sent to a blind cc, and you then hit Reply to All, does it also go to the blind cc or only to the individuals revealed on the e-mail?

 

A: Your concern is understandable, but no, replying to an e-mail with the Reply to All option does not also reply to those recipients who were blind copied on the original e-mail. By definition, when you receive an e-mail that was also blind copied to others, you have no way of knowing that other recipients were blind copied, and you certainly do not have access to their e-mail addresses.
