BCCtoGroup for Microsoft Outlook 2016/2019

As you know, Office 365 Group members who have been granted send-as or send-on-behalf-of permissions, can send email as or on-behalf-of the group. Unfortunately, when a user sends an email as the group, the sent email is placed to his personal Sent Items folder and other group members do not know the fact that a message from the group hes been sent.

Also, as a rule, when you receive a message as a group member you wish to reply as the group or on behalf of the group.

BCCtoGroup add-in solves these problems.

Every e-mail sent as or on behalf of Office 365 group is BCCed to that group and become visible for all members.

When you hit Reply/Reply All buttons on the message addressed to an Office 365 group and delivered to the Inbox, the From: address of the reply message will be set to the group address.

Current version: 1.0.0.2
