Sharing one folder with multiple guest users

I am not sure if I did something wrong or what triggered this behaviour but let me describe what I did and what happened:

I selected one folder  > clicked share with users > add users > add guest user > added the name and email of user A > added the name and email of user B > adjusted the permissions of both to download only and clicked apply.

Furthermore, I then checked the emails which were sent out to see if they were properly sent and found two outgoing emails: 

Email a) was sent to user A and email b) was sent to user A AND user B both directly addressed in the TO: section. 

Now this is not a problem as I was sharing with both of them intentionally, and they are one team, but I suppose the emails to multiple people should not be sent out together, right? 

Here is what it looks like on Gmail as I use their SMTP server:

Anyone? Did I do something wrong? I assume the emails should be sent individually and not via CC, right?

Curious, how is your server set up to deliver e-mails?  Are you using a SMTP server or the default behavior / options which I believe use the PHP Mail function?

On my installation, I can right click a folder or file, and choose SHARE... from there, I can choose EMAIL as my destination (making sure the WEBLINKS option is checked to avoid large attachments).  There is a TO: section as well as a BCC: section.  When sharing temporarily with guests, this avoids the need to explicitly create users.

Thanks for checking. I use an SMTP server and as I said, I did not share via email but as described I used guest users:

I selected one folder > clicked share with users > add users > add guest user > added the name and email of user A > added the name and email of user B > adjusted the permissions of both to download only and clicked apply.

See my response from 5 days ago... you might want to try the method I suggested to e-mail links WITHOUT the need to create guest users, AND you can determine if the same behavior occurs. If it does NOT then there is a bug within Filerun with regard to sharing with guests.
