E-mails

Sun Oct 12, 2008 1:22 am

I send daily e-mails to multiple addresses. Is there a setting that I can use so it will not show the list of people I send it to. I use outlook express on my window xp
Thanks Ray

Most (all?) email clients include a blind copy (BCC) facility which sends msgs without including the recipient address(es) in the header. It's a good way of preventing propagation of email addresses to folks you don't know. In fact it's a good idea to delete any email addresses from msgs you may receive and wish to forward to your friends. Though you know your friends and are confident they would not misuse the addresses they receive, perhaps someone down the line doesn't have as much integrity.

yeap, BCC...

By default Outlook Express doesn't show this field, so I think you just click View >> 'Show BCC Field' in Outlook Express, and you will then see this each time you go to send an email
