How the user can send email without others knowing

  Solartopi 16:46 16 Jan 08

Hi Folks

How can I send a Block E-mail to all my friends & relatives without letting others know who are on the list.

Please HELP!!

I'm not sure if it would work, but send it to yourself and BCC everyone else.

Put all the recipients in the BCC box, and your email address in the To box

This does work because it's the way I send out price lists to customers.

if you can't see the BCC box you'll have to select "Show all headers" different programs have different ways of doing this.

In Outlook Express New Message > View > Show All Headers

In Outlook New Message > View > Show BCC

On Hotmail New Message > Show CC and BCC

In Yahoo Compose > Show CC or Show BCC etc etc

bcc generally works but a determined person can find out who else was mailed.

With yahoo I send the Email to myself and on BCI (Blind Copy) to everyone else. Everyone else knows I sent the Email to myself but does not know what others get a copy. It works!
