Sorry for the late update.
The first step was finished and emails can now be carbon copied to contact’s alternative emails. To do so the contact fields which store the alternative emails must be explicitly marked on the email setting page.
Unsubscribing will unsubscribe all alternative emails simultaneously because they all belong to the very same account. The person clicking “unsubscribe” is warned about this on the unsubscribe page.
For now we paused the development of this feature. but not for good. :) So I’m changing this wish status back to “collecting comments”.
Thank you everyone for a valuable feedback.IFOA Webmaster commented
This does not affect my organization but as someone who does web application management professionally I understand where WA is coming from. Email functionality is a key cost. If someone wants to have multiple emails per account (potentially up to 50 as someone mentioned) it will have a significant impact on the infrastructure costs. Notice they don't charge differently if you have 50 content pages or 500 content pages. That is not a significant impact on infrastructure cost.
If you have 400 members with 600 email addresses you could potentially be sending 600 emails at one time. Another approach they could take is to charge you a smaller amount for the number of members but charge you for each email sent. That's a more complex model though because then they have to keep track of the number of emails and bill accordingly. The current model is very simple.
Your request is valid but to expect to pay the same price for that feature is not realistic.
