Support » Plugin: Email Users » I received email myself

    Hi, I have just installed this plugin and straight off sent an email to a group of test users, followed by a couple of emails to individual test users. The odd thing is that I received a copy of each email myself, even though I am not in the group and, in the settings, the “Copy Sender” option is not checked and the “From Sender Exclude” option is checked.

    So why am I receiving copies of the emails? Are all admins therefore receiving copies as well or just me as the sender?

    When sending to a group of users, either using the Send To Group function or by selecting more than one user from the list, Email Users will place the target recipient addresses in the BCC field.

    Because many email systems, for anti-spam reasons, don’t like Email without an address in the “To” field, Email Users will place the Email addrsss of the Sending User as the single To” recipient. This is likely te source of the behavior you are seeing and it is by design.

    Thank you for the explanation, that’s great! As long as it’s by design and not spamming the other admin, I’m happy 🙂
