    Description

      Hello,

      This is a clone of JENKINS-6703 where cc: support was added to email-ext. We also have need for bcc: so I've written that up and will be attaching pull request to this issue now that I have the ID for it.

      In the original issue bcc was not added, but I have a business use case where it is needed, so I made the change and want to publish it back to the community.

          Description Hello,

          a common use case for this plugin is that the the global recipient list contains addresses of people who are not actually involved in breaking or fixing a build, but who still would like to get informed about breaks and fixes.

          It would be very useful to have those people addressed in the CC: field of emails, instead of adding them to the "To:" field. This will also increase the awareness of the "real" breakers when a build fails.

          Such a distinction (To vs Cc/Bcc) will only be needed for the global recipient list, which could greatly simplify the implementation of this feature. I figure that support for some prefix in the list, like "CC:recipient@foobar.com", could be sufficient.

          Thanks a lot for this really powerful and extremely useful plugin!
