How to Send an Email to Undisclosed Recipients

Dennis Faas's picture

Have you ever wanted to send an email to a group of people -- but need to prevent the individuals in the group from seeing each other's email addresses?

You can do this by sending an email to "undisclosed recipients".

To do so:

  • Launch your email program, and click the button to create a new email message.
  • In the 'To' address field enter 'Undisclosed Recipients' followed by your e-mail address in braces.

    For example: 'Undisclosed Recipients '

    Side note: If you leave the TO: field blank, the email may bounce as some service providers may filter mark the mail as spam.
  • In the BCC (Blind Carbon Copy) field, enter the e-mail addresses of those to whom you are sending the message. If you are entering the addresses manually (I.E.: you are not selecting email addresses from an address book), make sure you enter a semi-colon (;) between each email address.

    Side note: If you use Outlook Express and your BCC field is not present, you can reveal the BCC field by clicking View -> All Headers in your New Message window.
  • Write your message and Send your e-mail.

That's it!
