How To Control Reply-All Emails When Sending To An Email Group

We all love to share good news with everyone in our community, but sometimes, the reply emails from many people in everyone’s inboxes creates more noise than is necessary. There is a way to control the reply emails that are generated when you use a group email address to send out a message. You can use the Bcc, or Blind carbon copy (in some places it is called blind courtesy copy) option when sending emails to a large email group.  This allows the only the sender of a message to receive all replies to the original email message. This post isn’t to keep you from sending emails throughout the community, it is to make you more mindful of what you are sending and what impact reply-all emails can have on someone else’s inbox. In addition to email, be aware that we have a Google+ Community that is a good place to share information.
