Challenges to be ready for
When you use the Cc or Bcc methods to send emails to multiple people, there may be some downsides:
The emails may be considered spam
Sending an email to multiple people at once using the Cc or Bcc methods may trigger spam filters. If you use email tools that aren’t designed for mass emails, your emails could end up in the recipient’s junk folder — or worse, never make it to their inbox at all. To avoid this fate, follow these simple tips on how to stop emails from going to junk.
The number of addresses may be limited
Some email services have a limit on how many addresses you can include in a bulk email to prevent possible fraudulent activity. For example, Gmail limits you to 500 addresses per email, while Outlook caps the number at 5000. The number of email addresses you are sending to does not matter, each message counts towards the limit. If your contacts list exceeds the limits, you will need to take a break and return to the mailing the next day.
Recipients can reply to all
When someone hits “Reply all” to a Cc email, everyone on the list will get that reply. This can quickly become annoying for people who are not interested in the conversation.
But it won’t happen to those contacts who are on the Bcc list. If you are a Bсс recipient of an email, by hitting the “Reply all”, you will only reply to the original sender and any contacts in the ‘To’ field. The other Bcc recipients will not see the reply.
It looks unprofessional
The Bcc method is not practical for professional mailings because the recipients can see that they have been added as a Bcc object. This looks unprofessional and might leave a bad impression on your clients and partners.
