- Reply All: Reply all will respond to every contact on the email thread. Anyone who has been cc'ed on the email will be included.
- Forward: Forwarding an email allows you to enter a new email address and send the email to additional recipients.
- CC means Carbon Copy: The cc list can be seen by those on the email thread. Contacts CCed can receive future emails on the thread when recipients use Reply All.
- Bcc means Blind Carbon Copy: The recipient receives a copy of the email, but their email is hidden from others. They will not receive future emails on the thread.
What is Share Email?
Emails are automatically linked to related Lead Records, Opportunity Records, and Contact Records.
Share Email allows users with record-level privileges to view these Emails.
This feature allows the team to easily stay up-to-date with correspondence and information related to the Opportunities they are working to close.
To view the emails related to a record:
- You need access privileges to view activities related to the record. Visit User / Group Roles for more information.
- The email has to be shared.
If the email has been shared, and you have access to activities related to those records, then you will be able to view the related email.
Tip: While your Emails won't be seen by others unless you share them, note that users with administrative privileges are able to view all emails whether or not they are shared.
What is Unshare Email?
If you have previously shared an email, clicking Unshare will stop Sharing the Email. Users will no longer be able to view the email.
Tip: If someone makes a copy of the email, Unshare will not impact this copy.

Syncing Past Email
Veloxity Inbox only shows emails related to the Lead and Contact email addresses recorded in Veloxity CRM.

- Click the overflow menu on the Inbox toolbar.
- Select Refresh Inbox Including History.
- The dialogue lets you know that this refresh will not duplicate emails, but it may bring previously deleted emails back into the system.
