In OSX 10.11 mail app if you "Reply all" it automatically CC's yourself. This seems to only happen when using reply all, but not when using reply.

The setting under : mail > preferences > composing > automatically cc myself is disabled.

Is there a way to stop Mail auto CC'ing yourself, when replying all ?


The preference is to keep a copy of an e-mail you originate or reply to one person or forward. I don't see the point, since a copy goes into a Sent folder anyway.

Reply All means All people on the message, not just some. If you don't want to keep a copy, just erase your name before sending. Of course, there will still be a copy in your sent folder anyway.

  • Agreed it strange because IMAP will keep a copy in the sent folder. I know when using POP people used to CC or BCC themselves so they would have a copy across multiple devices. In OSX 10.10 using reply all will reply to all recipients, but not inlcude you (the sender)

  • That would be incorrect, and I don't recall any version (from 9.0 to Mojave) ever handling reply all incorrectly.
