Yes.


snip:
$mail->SetFrom('name@yourdomain.com', 'First Last');
21.
22.$mail->AddReplyTo("name@yourdomain.com","First Last");
23.
24.$mail->Subject    = "PHPMailer Test Subject via smtp, basic with authentication";
25.
26.$mail->AltBody    = "To view the message, please use an HTML compatible email viewer!"; // optional, comment out and test
27.
28.$mail->MsgHTML($body);
29.
30.$address = "whoto@otherdomain.com";
31.$mail->AddAddress($address, "John Doe");
32.$bcc_address = "whatever@somewhere.dom";
33.$mail->AddBCC($bcc_address, "Name of Recipient");

If you run run a WordPress, you understand the potential headaches you may face when updating your plugins and themes. Do you choose to update on the fly and risk taking down your site; or do you set up a staging, keep it in sync with your live site and use that to test updates?

I'm not sure - my first thought would be that you would not be able to do that since you have no control over your client's e-mail client behaviour. a "Reply All" should automatically take care of this, but a "Reply" will only reply to the original sender.

This *may* need to be done on a lower level of the smtp software on your side: something like a auto-reply/auto-forward to a different address, or a group distribution address?

However, I have been wrong a few times over the last millennium ;) Maybe another expert can help you out here?

Hi logudotcom,

You cannot force an end user's mail client to add the BCC in on a reply.  It's a huge security hole and no mail client I can think of will respect the header.

If all of the messages are going through your web site, then yes...you can.  It's sleazy, but possible given the script above.

I know of no email program that will send the "reply" to anyone other than the originator of the email.  That would be the "from" address or the "reply to" address.  "Reply all" does what it sounds like.
