Adds email override settings, changing the email address to reply to an email address, name, or the BCC for email archive information, for the envelope. Note that adding email settings will only affect email communications that occur after the addition was made.

Important: The BCC Email address feature is designed to provide a copy of all email communications for external archiving purposes. DocuSign recommends that envelopes sent using the BCC for Email Archive feature, including the BCC Email Override option, include additional signer authentication options. To send a copy of the envelope to a recipient who does not need to sign, use a Carbon Copies or Certified Deliveries Recipient Type.
