" Dear Dennis,

I need to know how to list several addresses in such a way that no one knows who else received the message. If I list them separated with the semi-colon all addresses are sent to everyone. Would appreciate any help and thanks for your information site as it is really helpful. "

My response:

What you are referring to is called Blind Carbon Copy, or BCC. If you use Outlook Express:

  • Create your message (or reply to message)
  • Click view -> all headers in the message window
  • BCC will be shown
  • Insert the remaining email addresses in the BCC field

If you use another program to send your emails, go to the Help menu and do a search for "BCC" or "blind carbon copy". Hope that helps!
