Add support for CC: and BCC: to the Send Email form - so it more closely matches users' experience / expectation from an email client.
1. By default, the To: field is populated with selected contact(s). User can enter additional To: recipients by adding a comma and starting to type another contact name (auto-complete). This way the Send Email activity can start w/ 1 or a group of values in the "list" (if I trigger it from a contact record or from a search result set).
2. Links to 'Add Cc" and "Add Bcc" are included just below the To: field. When cicked, the corresponding field is shown with the auto-complete / comma separated recipient list functionality.
3. The email form should work without a recipient passed in on the URL (i.e. if no cid= is included, then the To: is empty)
4. The auto-complete select contact widget used in To, Cc and Bcc should filter out contacts who we will not send mail to:
- Do not email = true
- Email address is on hold
- Contact is deceased
- is supplemented by
