This is how adults make email introductions

I’m a big fan of the e-intro and love the idea of etiquette for this sort of thing, but I’m a little confused by your recommendation in the scenario you’ve outlined here. Since you’re directly addressing the introducer in the email, why not CC them rather than BCC? If you didn’t address them directly in the email, then BCCing would make sense as it’s just a way of letting the introducer know that a connection between the two parties has been established, but doesn’t require their ongoing participation. BCCing someone you directly address them in the email is sketchy to me and would make me, if I were the receiver of the message, wonder who ELSE might be copied in the BCC field that wasn’t named in the email.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
