This article will show how to easily add Cc and Bcc recipients while mailing the merged document. There is no such build-in option in Microsoft Office but using Mail Merge Toolkit you can send Carbon and Blind Carbon Copies. Just specify secondary and hidden recipients the same way as in regular Outlook messages.
But what’s the point of sending copies of personalized emails in the first place?
The main idea of Cc is to make all recipients aware of getting the same message. And later by using the Reply All option, people from this email thread can be involved in the future conversation. This is especially useful for related contacts like a recipient, and recipient`s assistant, or student, and parent, or client, and account manager, etc.
On the other hand, Bcc allows the opposite scenario, by hiding additional recipients from anyone listed in the To and Cc fields in order to protect the privacy of email addresses and names.
This can be used in both internal and external communications.
