23.1 Configuring the Field that Vibe Uses When Sending E-Mails

By default, e-mails that are sent from Vibe are sent with the recipients in the BCC field. You can configure Vibe to use the To field rather than the BCC field for all sent messages.

Configuring Vibe in this way makes it so message recipients can see other message recipients in the e-mail notification. For information about how to configure Vibe to send individual messages to each user rather than including multiple users on the same message, see Section 23.2, Configuring the Number of Users Who Can Be Included in the Same E-Mail Notification.

  6. Copy the mail.notifyAsBCC=true line from the ssf.properties file to the bottom of the ssf-ext.properties file.

  7. Change true to false, so that the line now reads mail.notifyAsBCC=false.

  8. Save and close the ssf-ext.properties file.

  9. Close the ssf.properties file without saving it.

  10. Stop and restart Vibe to configure Vibe to use the To field rather than the BCC field when sending messages.
